Cain Velasquez was spotted at the WWE Performance Center this week, training for his match in Mexico City next week. Velasquez, who has only wrestled once for WWE and three times in total including 2 stints in AAA, is said to be struggling with significant knee issues, as well and was booked, then taken off and then re-added to the card in Mexico City. He is scheduled to team up with Humberto Carrillo to take on Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows. #CainVelasquez#WWE#MexicoCity#UFC#Follow#Likes

We are proud to announce we will return to 🇲🇽Mexico🇲🇽 for Vive Latino Festival 2020, one of the biggest festivals in Latin America!
One of the most important and largest cities in the pre-Columbian Americas is the Teotihuacán. It's considered the sixth largest city in the world in those times with a population of 125,000+ people. Its ruins were approximately built in 100 AD and used until 800 AD. The ethnicity (or perhaps multiple ethnicities) of the original architects responsible were never determined although the Aztecs claimed heritage from the Teotihuacános.
The ruins measures about 40 km (or 25 miles) northeast of Mexico City in the Estado de Mexico (state of Mexico). The architectural site, including the pyramids and the Avenue of the Dead, was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.
If you're a historical-inclined traveler (and is alright with climbing several stairs ;)), be sure to get in touch. I'd love to help you plan your trip. You can either send me a direct message or send me an email when you're ready to start planning.

Xochimilco (or ‘The Place Where the Flowers Grow’ in Nahuatl language) is a key attraction for both tourists and locals of Mexico city. Just an hour south of the city centre, people flock here in their droves on a weekend or public holidays to boat on the canals and "Chinampas" (floating gardens) of Tenochtitlán, a former Aztec city that the conquering Spanish named "the Venice of the New World". As you float along in your open air gondola, or "Trajinera", mariachi musicians will play traditional songs on passing barges, flower sellers and food vendors will pull up next to you and families will be partying with beers on nearby boats. Although Xochimilco officially became part of Mexico City in 1928, it was a separate city since pre-Hispanic times. The canals that characterise the area are all that is left of a lake covering much of the area. The Aztecs filled in parts of the lake, creating waterways for transportation. The lake continued to shrink during early colonisation until only the canals of Xochimilco remained as they are today. 1,000 years ago, the pre-hispanic settlers of the area created rafts of juniper branches on to which they placed soil to use for cultivation known as "Chinampas". These remaining "Chinampas" are part of the Xochimilco World Heritage Site since 1987 and are still used today for crops and flower growing while some larger islands have formed solid ground, allowing for buildings to be constructed on them. Xochimilco is a popular weekend outing for thousands of Mexicans and tourists, who visit the area in colourful "Trajineras" (flat-bottomed boats). It is still an important market-gardening and flower-producing centre for the city, despite its being surrounded by urban sprawlin the latter part of the 20th century...I recommend visiting the Xochimilco canals on your next visit to Mexico City... #mexico 🇲🇽🇲🇽 #ciudaddemexico#mexicocity#xochimilco#trajineras#chinampas#adventure#adventuretime#travel#travelmexico#discovermexico#mexicodesconocido#descubremexico#viajemostodospormexico#viaje#ilovemexico#ilovexochimilco#traveler#culture#cultura#travelculture#culturaviajera#worldexplorer#mexicosorprendente
День мертвых в Мексике! 🏜💀🇲🇽 Забегая вперед - сразу скажу, что именно ради этого события я решил посетить Мексику в начале ноября! 2 дня в году - 1 и 2 ноября здесь почитают память безвременно ушедших родственников. У мексиканцев собственное отношение к смерти, она практически у них в культе и объясняется это тем, что смерть способна отнять жизнь даже у Иисуса, следовательно она сильнее и ей надо поклоняться. Талисманом праздника является Катрина - образ олицетворяющий смерть, люди со всего мира прилетают сюда, чтобы примерить этот образ на себе и окунуться в неповторимую атмосферу единственного в мире праздника мертвых! Ваш покорный слуга тоже не смог пройти мимо и пришлось проделать путь в 1500 км из Канкуна в Мехико, чтобы оказаться в самой гуще событий! #Мексика#Mexico#МехикоСити#MexicoCity#ДеньМертвых#ElDíadeMuertos#экскурсиимексика#путешествия#Catrina#смерть#dayofthedead#путешествия
Особая благодарность @ekskursii_v_meksike и @tanya_in_mexico за организацию экскурсии, а так же гиду - Вере!
4. It appears to be virtually indestructible.
Over the centuries, two separate events had the potential to harm the tilma, one in 1785 and one in 1921.
In 1785, a worker was cleaning the glass encasement of the image when he accidentally spilled strong nitric acid solvent onto a large portion of the image itself.
The image and the rest of the tilma, which should have been eaten away almost instantly by the spill, reportedly self-restored over the next 30 days, and it remains unscathed to this day, aside from small stains on the parts not bearing the image.
In 1921, an anti-clerical activist hid a bomb containing 29 sticks of dynamite in a pot of roses and placed it before the image inside the Basilica at Guadalupe.
When the bomb exploded, the marble altar rail and windows 150 feet shattered. A brass crucifix was twisted and bent out of shape. But the tilma and its glass case remained fully intact. *This article originally appeared at Mountain Catholic then at Crux.

3. The tilma has shown characteristics startlingly like a living human body.
In 1979, when Callahan, the Florida biophysicist, was analyzing the tilma using infrared technology, he apparently also discovered that the tilma maintains a constant temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, the same as that of a living person.
When Carlos Fernandez del Castillo, a Mexican gynecologist, examined the tilma, he first noticed a four-petaled flower over what was Mary’s womb.
The flower, called the Nahui Ollin by the Aztecs, was a symbol of the sun and a symbol of plenitude.
Upon further examination, Castillo concluded that the dimensions of Our Lady’s body in the image were that of an expectant mother due quite soon. Dec. 9, the day of the unveiling, is barely two weeks from Christmas.
One of the most common attributions and reported discoveries lie with the Virgin’s eyes in the image.
When Jose Aste Tonsmann, a Peruvian ophthalmologist, conducted a study, one of his tests involved examining the eyes on the tilma at 2,500 times magnification.
With the images of the magnified eyes, the scientist was reportedly able to identify as many as 13 individuals in both eyes at different proportions, just as the human eye would reflect an image.
It appeared to be a snapshot of the very moment Juan Diego unfurled the tilma before the archbishop. #mexico#mexicocity#ourladyofguadalupe#ourladyofguadalupecatholicchurch#virgenguadalupe#catholicpilgrimage#mothermary#mothermaryprayforus#miracle
