Do you like to visit our country?

Yes, I do. This is the second time I have visited Mexico. I love the people here and there is so much to see and do! Y me encanta tener la oportunidad de mejorar mi español. He estudiado el español por doce años, más o menos, pero es difícil porque casi no hay hispanohiblantes en el estado de Maine, dónde vivo.

View of Palenque from atop a pyramid.

Palenque Ruins in Chiapas, Mexico. This pyramid, called the Temple of Inscriptions, is where the tomb of King Pacal lies. Pacal ruled over Palenque for almost 70 years, starting at the age of 12.

I was looking for people in Xalapa and found you. I am also visiting Xalapa, although I am of Cordoba. Nice to meet you :)

Nice to meet you too! I love Xalapa. I return to the United States in 17 days and I don’t want to!

Museo de Antropología en la Ciudad de México.

Graffiti covered building near la Reforma, Mexico City.

The old Basilica in Mexico City. 

This cathedral was built by the Spanish. They destroyed much of the Aztec pyramids in this area to be able to use the stones to build it. This area was part of the city of Tenochtitlan, and now lies in the middle of Mexico City.
