Xochimilco & The Olympic Race Course

A Sunday afternoon visit to Xochimilco, in the south of Mexico City. We rented one of these colorful boats (una chalupa), bought some hot quesadillas and a michelada for Omar, and were off on a tour of the canal. We were alongside this boat most of the afternoon and were treated to the Grupo NorteƱo they hired to serenade them on their boat ride. You can see them on the far side of the picture. Not far from Xochimilco is rowing racecourse built for the 1968 Olympics--my Dad raced here!
