Hi Chris,m I'm glad to send you a card! Xochimilco is a touristic place in Mexico City; very famous. Unfortunately, the canals are in not good shape. I used to go to travel in the Trajuieras as a child and teenager with my parents and my sister. You can eat aboard and there are also boats with vuisiciaus, so you can look through while travling throug the canals.. Un abrazo, alejandra.
