    Metro Xola
    There are several versions about the origin of the word Xola. One is that, in the nineteenth century were the estates of Narvarte, Becerra and La Condesa, ranches of Naples and Sola. Over the years, this single word (name of the owners) was changing, as some written and pronounced the Schola, until he finally changed the first three letters for the "X" that looks now that gives the same pronunciation.

    Research ... Rio de la Piedad was ever a river?
    Yes! It originated About one kilometer from the Tacubaya borough in what is now west-Central Mexico City. It was tubed in 1942 and the expressway viaduct was built over part of it. The "river" now emerges from the tubing in eastern Mexico City in the new channel of Rio Churubusco near Pantitlán.

    Question - Do You have any additional information About visiting the axolotl breeding facility in Canal Apatloco in Xochimilco? For example, how long does it take to reach the site from the Caltongo launching site? I'd like to see the facility, but I'm traveling with a small group That Is not In This destination as interested as I am. Also, I've just started learning Spanish, so I fear That Attempts to ask questions of the person driving the trajinera will go nowhere.

    Answer - As always, I would recommend hiring a local knowledgeable guide. Xochimilco is a place That can be enjoyed by everyone, so even if your group is not as interested in the axolotl breeding program as you are, they'll still get to enjoy a leisurely tour on the water, the lively atmosphere filled with music or bird song (Depending on the channel!). It takes about 90 minutes to get to the site and one of the pluses is the Entire punt When is lifted by an elevator. In terms of guides, the best of the best is Marlene Ehrenberg .
