We will start in the "Downtown" of Mexico City, the first experience will be to eat grasshoppers and I'll invite you a pulque an fermented beverage from maguey (agave) plant very traditional in central Mexico. Then I'll take you to one of the most oldest markets of Mexico, not many tourist over here, so you will feel like a local people, while we talk about art, history and we will be preparing our meanwhile our stomachs prepares for an unforgettable experience. After enter into this market you will see the most exotic food, worms, spiders, scorpions, flying bugs, meats like crocodile, lion even sharks (yeah you read right). I'll can give you tips about what does it taste, and where to eat, and at this point your consumption runs on your own so you can decide how much you spend.

I grew up in Mexico, a city with a lot of contrast, culture and tradition, the last year I lived in Europe from a period of six months and you know what happened?
