4 things I learned about Mexico

In an effort to learn more about Luis and where he came from I am attempted to learn a random fact about Mexico per week. I have dropped all of my "research" into casual conversations with Luis and he has awlays seemed very impress!

  • When the Spanish came to "invade" Mexico they came as "friendly foes"
  • In 2006 19.2 million people lived in Mexico city, in comparisson 4.2 million live in all of MN
  • the part of Mexico City Santa Fe is being rebuilt over landfills
  • Ciudad Nezahualc├│yotl (aka Ciudad Neza) where Luis is from is build on a drained lake bed. Lake Texaco.

I would like to thank Wikipedia for all it's help in making me sound smart!
