Bella Ferrer / Ruta 69
CdMx, 23 Jun 2017 (The Route of Information).- Liz Cacich recently decided to visit Mexico City above the beach a place that is preferred by many American tourists, she is a U.S. citizen from the state of Minnesota. From all the places that she could go for vacation she decided to come to Mexico City and she tells us about her experience.
“Mexico City is a city that almost never sleeps, there is always traffic, there is always something interest to observe or see if you take the time”, she mentions as her first impression.
Pyramids, The Cathedral, Down Town (El Centro), Castillo de Chapultepec, Reforma Avenue, Palacio de Bellas Artes, Casa Azul (Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo museum) and Coyoacan were some of her favorite places to visit. She share with us that when she first saw the Pyramid, she was very impressed by how tall and big it was, but she enjoyed the climb and charged herself of good vibes.
Liz enjoys the unique Mexican cuisine and even though she got multiple opinions on her social media for trying exotic food, she likes trying new things and she hasn’t found anything she didn’t like yet. She tried for the first time “chapulines” (grasshoppers), “tacos de jamaica” (hibiscus flower tacos), “sopa de lima” (lime soup), “chamorro al pibil” (slow-roasted pork dish from the Yucatan Peninsula), and “pulque” (fermented sap of agave)
Traversing through the city using public transportation was something that took her longer to acclimate to than other activities, “getting used to the bus system and the metro system and feeling packed like a sardine, in Minnesota when you take public transportation you can have a little bit more space to spread out” Liz said.
LIZ, WHO IS 33 YEARS OLD FELT PRETTY SAFE IN MEXICO CITY; SHE RECOMMENDED TAKING THE TIME TO INVESTIGATE THE CURRENT EVENTS THAT ARE GOING ON BEFORE YOU REACH ANY DESTINATION. SHE ALSO ADVISED OF EXTRA PRECAUTIONS THAT HAVE TO BE TAKEN WHILE TRAVELING, LIKE; KEEPING AN EYE IN YOUR PURSE AND PERSONAL ITEMS, BUT SHE NEVER FELT IN DANGER OR AFRAID OF ANYTHING.
Liz broke the American paradigm of only visiting the beach. She mentioned that no wall could prevent illegal immigration, and secure the border. Her belief is that Mexican and Americans must continue to have open dialogue in order to strengthen business relations between Mexico and the U.S. In order for this to happen a respect for the Mexican culture needs to remain, and only then will business ties between Mexico and the U.S. strengthen.
She recommends that other American take the time to go to Mexico City, learn more about the culture that flows through Mexico City. Mexico City has a lot to offer as far as museums, restaurants and entertainment, so take the time to go and explore multiple times. Don’t just go to the beach.
Liz is back in Minnesota, but she enjoyed her visit to Mexico City so much that she is planning to come back around Christmas time.
