My very favorite part of my recent trip to Mexico was the day that some friends and I ventured to Xochimilco. This was something that I knew would be more fun with as many people as possible. We hopped on the metro and went to the end of the line and transferred to a whole different set of metro lines and rode to the end of that line. Once we got off the metro it was a short walk down to the canals where we haggled the price to rent a gondola, or , for a few hours. Once we settled on a decent price, our captain brought us a bucket of beers and we set off to see all the beautiful sites in this very unique neighborhood.
