Zocalo, Mexico city, Mexico - 18th April 2009

By: manzanita

Today on afternoon Guss, my mom and i went to  haberdasher's shop at downtown.


After do the shopping we were walking by downtown; let me tell you that mexico's city downtown it's really beautiful and have much historical places, too many squares, museum and more great buildings, Guss could see much interesting things, such the "Danzantes Aztecas (aztec dancers)"day, them dance with the rithym of the drum and them make a offering to the Aztec Gods; it's a very folkloric moment to see them doing some dancings.

Guss was really amused



later mom bought a mexican meal named "Tlayuda" it's a tortilla made with green corn have fried beens, white cheese, nopales and sauce it taste very good, Guss tasted it and to him likes it!!

after eat, i showed to Guss a statues that represent how mexico's city was founded at the aztec times; at that times the city has other name and was "Tenochtitlan", i told to Guss the myth of how it happened: that people from a little town called "Aztlan"  was contacted by The God Huitzilopochtli and  he told that them must to found other city in a place where them see an eagle on a nopal devouring a snake, that was the signal; aztecs found it on a Lake then in that place there founded the new city.

Here's Guss watching the statues.

To be continued.
