Ray claims, “If you are hoping to identify it, take a dart, toss it at the map of Mexico. If you strike a bullseye suitable in the middle of the place, you have in all probability hit Queretaro. We’re about two or three several hours north of Mexico Town, in the highlands of Mexico. It’s the condition just north of Mexico Metropolis.”

Queretaro is just one of the richest cities in Mexico. There is a Ferrari dealership here and Sam’s Club and all types of modern conveniences.

Queretaro is a centre for aeronautics in Mexico so it does have an global airport. Ray implies you fly in and straight away go down to the historic center of the city with its plazas and nightlife. Queretaro is safer than most U.S. towns. On the second working day, Ray directs us to investigate the region such as an artwork museum and a calendar museum. The theater in town is the place the Mexican national anthem was first executed. Because this was the funds for the French Emperor Maximillian, the city’s squares may well search more French than Mexican.

A abundant family created their hacienda on an abnormal hill… which turns out to be a pre-Columbian pyramid.

Just one level about the deserted/decrepit buildings: It has much less to do with economics, but with an ambiguous legal situation.
