Abbiamo fatto il tuor guidato al Museo di Antropologia e al castello di Chapultepec con Carla, una guida preparatissima, simpatica e puntuale. Le cose da vedere erano davvero tante ma lei ha saputo darci un excursus delle nozioni principali per addentrarsi nella storia mesoamericana e messicana. Un tour che consiglio assolutamente! Grazie Carla!

The Anthropology Museum was such an extensive place and it helped to have a guide who could show us the most essential works and give an oral history of Mesoamerica.
