Hola amigos!

I got this awesome card from Marco in Mexico! Thank you so much Marco! The only bad thing is that some stupid mailservice person put a staplerthingie in my beautiful postcard! đŸ˜„ meeeh!

Marco wrtites:

Yochib is a village in the rural area, ubicated in the state of Chiapas. People of the ethnic groups Tzotziles and Tzeltaes attend the local market and exchange goods like vegetables, domestic animals, cacao seeds, wood and cloths. Lots of them realize these exchanges without money. This commercial system was already used in the pre-columbian-area and many villages still use it nowadays.

Hola amigos!

Jipeee! Here goes a beautiful postcard from the great country MĂ©xico!! MuchĂ­simas gracias Maggie! Me encanta!

Teotihuacan, was a pre-Columbian Mesoamerican city located in the Basin of Mexico, 30 miles (48 km) northeast of modern day Mexico City, which is today known as the site of many of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramids, Teotihuacan is also anthropologically significant for its complex, multi-family residential compounds, the Avenue of the Dead, and the small portion of its vibrant murals that have been exceptionally well-preserved. Additionally, Teotihuacan produced a thin orange pottery style that spread through Mesoamerica.

Maggie wrote:

This is the Pyramid of the Moon and it’s smaller than the sun pyramide. Teotihuacan is near the city (MĂ©xico D.F.) in Estado de MĂ©xico. It’s a big arquaelogical zone. Here, you can visit the Quetalcoatl temple and the Street of Deads.

I love it!

Hola amigos!

Yipeeee! My first card from México! Muchísimas gracias José! Me encantan mucho ts postales!

The Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts) is the most important cultural center in Mexico City as well as the rest of the country of Mexico. It is located on the west side of the historic center of Mexico City next to the Alameda Central park.

The first National Theater of Mexico was built in the late 19th century, but it was soon decided to tear this down in favor of a more opulent building in time for Centennial of theMexican War of Independence in 1910. The initial design and construction was undertaken by Italian architect Adamo Boari in 1904, but complications arising from the soft subsoil and the political problem both before and during the Mexican Revolution, hindered then stopped construction completely by 1913. Construction began again in 1932 under Mexican architect Federico Mariscal and was completed in 1934. The exterior of the building is primarily Neoclassical and Art Nouveau and the interior is primarily Art Deco. The building is best known for its murals by Diego Rivera, Siqueiros and others, as well as the many exhibitions and theatrical performances its hosts, including the Ballet Folklorico de Mexico.

This is a great card!
