So, I have resigned myself to the fact that the final Mexico blog posts serve more of a record keeping purpose than a communication tool.  Valerie's last two days were wonderful and we filled them full.  Monday we had plans to go to Xochimilco, but when we got there, it was completely empty except for a man working the boats and a couple slightly intoxicated men trying to sell us beer.  We didn't really have a good feeling about getting on a boat with this man that we had a weird feeling about, so we snapped a picture in front of a boat and decided to take off.  (I don't have the picture on this computer, so I will have to add it later.)

After we traveled over two hours to get there, turned right around to head back, so we walked a ways to get back to a man street, caught a taxi, a few different metro lines, a bus ride, and made it back to those good safe walls of the MTC.  We were able to hop off the metro to walk through the Zocolo quickly.  Valerie bought a pair of shoes that she loved and we were able to show Valerie the beautiful Bellas Artes.  We went out for tacos that night and then got ready to head to the pyramids the next day!
