October 1990, Wayne Wsterberg was arrested so Chris heads for Mexico. He made it across the border in a cheap kayak. He tried to paddle through the Gulf Coast, but couldn't because the way was blocked by swamps. A group of Mexicans gave him a ride to shore, after exploring he later returned to America.
With painting-packed museums, lively craft markets, colonial architecture, and inventive restaurants, Mexico City is one of the most exciting cities in the world. And believe it or not, with a little careful planning and a comfy pair of shoes, travelers can cover it all in a weekend.
