Encontre esto sobre Monterrey, se me hizo muy interesante..... Cosas que no sabia, lo unico es que esta en ingles...

Espero que los regios corroboren lo que dice esta nota...

La verdad que Monterrey es todo un orgullo para todos los Mexicanos.





Bustling and booming at the feet of the breathtaking Sierra Madre mountains, Monterrey stands as a city apart in Mexico. Its wealth and industry has made it the shining star of the Mexican economy and has also certified the reputation given the "Regios" (as the denizens of Monterrey are popularly known) of being a hard-working, industrious lot.

Monterrey is a modern and wholly industrialized city, and it also has a long history, having been founded in 1596 by Diego de Montemayor who settled the area with 12 Jewish families who had been converted to Catholicism so as to escape the Inquisition. While the old part of town (the "Barrio Antiguo") is still intact, renovated for the most part into trendy bars, cafes and trinket stores, Monterrey reminds one much more of a modern Texan city like El Paso or San Antonio than it does of the stereotypical central Mexican colonial town. Its wide, pothole-free motorways, pristine streets, efficiently functioning infrastructure and orderly urban design makes Monterrey a veritable exception as far as Mexican cities go.

Living in Monterrey

The nicest residential area in Monterrey is San Pedro Garza Garcia. Indeed it's one of the swankiest neighborhoods in Mexico. Although it's considered to be a separate city, it's very much a part of Monterrey. Besides offering all the usual suburban comforts, including lush gardens and beautiful parks, Garza Garcia is also the safest city in Mexico and offers such amenities as some of the most advanced and largest malls in Mexico, some very fine restaurants and some very chic bars and nightclubs. Other good neighborhoods include Cumbres, Contry, San Jeronimo and San Agustin.

Schooling

Monterrey offers some excellent bilingual schools and universities that cater to all the needs of foreigners and Mexicans alike. In terms of schooling, the American Institute of Monterrey and the American School Foundation of Monterrey are all very good choices, with their immaculate campuses and facilities and excellent teaching staff and curriculum. Both schools are located in Garza Garcia. Also in Garza Garcia is the Ingles Gava Colegio, while in Monterrey itself can be found the North American School, the Latin American School of Monterrey and the Liceo de Monterrey. All of these schools offer bilingual education, although most of the classes are in English. All schools have a distinctly international flavor, particularly the American School Foundation.



In terms of universities, the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM), better known as the "Tec de Monterrey," is a world-class university, considered one of the best in Mexico. The Universidad de Monterrey is also a very good university, along with the Universidad Autonoma de Nuevo Leon.

Health and Hospitals in Monterrey

In terms of health, Monterrey does have significant air pollution but is otherwise a very clean city. It also offers some world-class hospitals such as the Hospital San Jose - Tec de Monterrey, the Hospital Muguerza and the Servicio Integral de Emergencia/Lifeline, all of which are located in Monterrey city, while Garza Garcia has hospitals such as the Hospital Santa Engracia and the Emme Emergencias Medicas.

Things to do: Day Trips

There are quite a few things to do in Monterrey. Chipinque National Park, which borders Garza Garcia, is one such diversion, offering much cooler temperatures than in Monterrey, especially during the scorching summer months. There are some great picnic spots, hiking trails, mountain biking, dirt trails for motorcross enthusiasts, and some very secluded areas with breathtaking views for those who just want some peace, quiet and seclusion. La Estanzuela offers another secluded, verdant and pretty get-away from the city, with waterfalls and rivers adding to its general charm. The Presa de la Boca is a reservoir situated 45 minutes southeast of Monterrey and is a large reservoir where all forms of water sports can be indulged in. Just next to the town of Santiago, the Presa de la Boca is a particularly popular spot in summer. While there it's worth checking the famous Cola de Caballo waterfalls. Also about 45 minutes from Monterrey, to the southwest along the Saltillo road, lie the Grutas de Garcia, beautiful subterranean caverns that are 60 million years old.

Shopping

For more urban pastimes, Monterrey offers the Planetario Alfa, a high-tech complex that includes an observatory, an aviary, an IMAX giant screen theatre, science garden and interactive displays that make this a great, relaxing get-away, with its especially tranquil setting and beautiful architecture. In terms of shopping, Garza Garcia offers some giant malls with every kind of store and multi-theatre cinemas to boot, the Plaza Comercial La Fe and the Plaza San Pedro being two of the largest.

Sports and Exercise

Monterrey offers some excellent golf and tennis clubs, though they are for the most part very private and very expensive. Some more reasonable exceptions include the Club de Golf - Hacienda el Mirador, and for tennis the Centro Tenistico (Tennis Center) de Nuevo Leon. Some of the best clubs are Club Hípico la Silla (Equestrian), Chipinque Raquet Club, Club de Golf Valle Alto, Club Campestre and the Deportivo Alpino Chipinque. As for gyms, Monterrey has any number of top-level gyms, including the Sports City chain. Some of the best gyms are the Arena Monterrey, Gimnasio del I.T.E.S.M., Gimnasio Nuevo Leon and the Irish Institute's gym.

Hotels

Monterrey boasts some fine five-star accommodation, including the Sheraton Ambassador, the Radison Plaza Gran Hotel Ancira, the Howard Johnson Gran Plaza Monterrey, the Hilton Garden Inn, all around the center of the city, while in Garza Garcia can be found the beautiful Quinta Real. For mid-range accommodation there are Holiday Inn, Fiesta Inn and Hampton Inn hotels scattered throughout the city.

Bars and Nightclubs

Monterrey has something to suit every taste, from jazz to techno, from mariachi bars to pubs. Many places have live performances and the city has the sound of music around every corner.

Esta bien redactado pero si trae bastantes errores...

Como decir que la Arena Monterrey es un gimnasio cuando nada que ver... "Some of the best gyms are the Arena Monterrey", es que en español le pueden llamar gimnacio a una cancha pero en inglés no tiene sentido y menos cuando estas hablando del Sport City justo antes.

O que los centros comerciales mas grandes de Garza Garcia son Plaza Comercial La Fe (que no esta en Garza Garcia y esta super chiquita) y Plaza San Pedro (casi abandonada ya) "In terms of shopping, Garza Garcia offers some giant malls with every kind of store and multi-theatre cinemas to boot, the Plaza Comercial La Fe and the Plaza San Pedro being two of the largest"
Giant malls serían Plaza Fiesta San Agustín y Galerías Valle Oriente en todo caso.

"mariachi bars" yo todavía no conosco ninguno.. jajaj... han de haber traducido "La Mariachita" y dijeron un Mariachi Bar.. jajaj nada que ver.


... en fin, tampoco les voy a corregir la tarea...

La foto esta chida!

Manda la liga!

Como que agarraron un texto en español y lo traducieron así al chile... se nota que ni conocen la ciudad aunque caba señalar que si le echaron bastante crema al artículo... el que no sabe si dice chingon, pero si trae sus detalles. La idea es buena al fin.
