Wordless Wednesday – Chinampas

Last Saturday I went with a group of friends to a tour of las chinampas, floating gardens and farms, in Xochimilco. The tour is offered by De La Chinampa, a company that connects consumers with local producers in Xochimilco, and organized by Lesley Tellez. I will write about this incredible experience on my next article for Zomppa magazine. For now, enjoy the pictures.

March 20th, 2012 update: The Zomppa article is out. You can read it here.
