In Southern Mexico City, deep in the heart of the Xochimilco neighborhood, you can find some of the old canal systems that were once the life-line of the ancient Aztec capital built on a lake.  Although they are no longer used to bring in goods or transport war prisoners from faraway lands, the canals are still teaming with excitement.  No trip to Mexico City is complete without visiting Xochimilco and taking a trajinera, or gondala ride, down this unique and historic part of the city.
