Me and Tere during the Turibus
As most of the people might know Cuernavaca is my base town, Everything I do here is Mexico is organized from here. The main reason for this: It is the hometown of Tere (my girlfirend, hou van je mijn liefste), but untill this moment I never been really a tourist in Cuernavaca. Today proofed to be the perfect day for being a Tourist. Together with Tere, Hannah, Diana and Ricardo (a friend from Troyes) I was going to be sightseeing Cuernavaca.

First we visted the local market in Cuernavaca, it is a market like most markets in the world, mainly with items nobody needs, but here and there you see some amazing craftmanship and other really cool items. I was here before buying all the presents for the people in Holland, and Yes Mom I bought something really amazing for your new house.

After the market it was time for the Turibus. Like I already describe in more entries the Turibus is one of the best and quickest ways to see a city. this time it was no exemtion also because we saw some places even tere had seen never before. First the bus took us to some of the more important places in Cuernavaca; the catedral, the palace of Cortez, some statues of Zapata (a hero here in Mexico) and some others. Coming to the most negative aspect of the Turibus. I don´t have enough time to make pictures and when you take pictures most of the times it is not what you wanted or something else is wrong. This give the photos a good story, but diffcult to let the people at home show what you´re seeing.

At some moment the bus stopped at we had to leave the bus, not knowing why we did what we have been told.
Belief it or Not this is inside a city
Not knowing that this would be the best part of the entire trip. A jungle in the middle of a city. Most of the time cities have special areas naked for the eye and know by the people who live there. This was such a place, naked for the eye, but truly amazing. It is not everyday you see a jungle in the middle of the city. This park was placed there by the Spanish conqueres, but it was really amazing, even more beautiful than the jungle near Tepoztlan. I hope the photos can give a image on how amazing it was, because you don´t have the feeling anymore that you are in a city were almost 1 million people life.

Afterwards the bus went back again and he could visted a archological site Teopanzolco, which is in Cueranvaca. This is a small temple areas of the Aztecs dated from 1300 AC. The complex knows three different temples, one (the biggest) for Quetzalcoatl, one (I forgot the name) for the god of fire and the other was unknown. The site wasn´t really big, but nevertheless it was good to walk there and learn about the Aztecs. With visting the temple site it was the ending of spending the day as a real tourist. It can be nice for a change and I went back to Tere her house, because I changed appartments, because Tere here aunt who had an operation is now staying in my old appartment.
