I LoVe MeXiCo CiTy !!!

Like an enormous living museum, Mexico City is a remarkable showplace for Mexico's 3,000 years of human cultural achievement. It ranks as one of the world's great capitals and is a must for anyone yearning to understand Mexico's complex past and ever challenging future. The size and grandeur of the city are staggering. It is not only the oldest continuously inhabited city in the Western Hemisphere, but also carries the burden of being the largest city the world has ever known.

One could spend many months exploring all the museums, monuments, plazas, colonial buildings, monasteries, murals, galleries, historical remnants, archaeological finds, statuary, shrines and religious relics this encyclopedia of a city has to offer.

It lies in a valley which used to be filled with a large lake called Texcoco hundreds of years ago and where the great city of Tenochtitlan - the capital of the Azteca's Empire - was founded. Tenochtitlan was finally destroyed by the Spanish conquistadors in 1521. Today's Mexico City is full of contrasts.

I don't know if it's just me, but the historic downtown of Mexico City is really beautful, makes me wanna visit it every pic I see, but also the pics bring a sensation of emptiness (sp?). Don't you guys feel the same?
