Floating market in Xochimilco, Mexico

  • Have any members who have traveled in Mexico, been just south of Mexico City to Xochimilco? My sister and I were reminiscing over a favorite childhood book about a family who sold their flowers at the famous floating gardens there. Colorful -- and clearly very memorable! The only thing is that my childhood image was of a lovely lake filled with small boats filled with beautiful flowers; an Internet search suggests that it is a tourist trap filled with not so beautiful tourists.

    But mariachis! Love the mariachis!
