Our next stop was a small house near by where the family specialized in the production of Tequila and artwork made out of Obsidian. One guy gave us some insight into the production of Tequila from the Agave plant and various species of the pla
nt. Next stop, was a family who specialized in the production of delicacies made out of cactus. Final stop, was a "dinner with a local family". Although, we never dined with the family themselves, we were served some salad and tamarind chicken, which was delicious. After dinner, we took the bus back and a taxi to get to Zocalo.

Of course, the competition to get in, is cut throat, but it makes quality education within the reach of those who can't afford private schools.
We stopped for lunch at the Coyocan market, where were had tostadas and aquas (juices).
Our final stop was at the Frida Kahlo museum where her works were on display. The museum was actually her last home, in Coyoacan, where she spent her final years. The museum contains a collection of artwork by her, and is one of the most visited in Mexico city.
That brought to end an interesting and educating five days in one of the largest cities in the world.
Given it's proximity and direct flights from most major cities in the U.S, I'm surprised why more people don't visit this historic and cultural megacity. The city is clean, safe, the people are friendly and there's lots to do here!
