Mexico

Mexico is a country where affluence, poverty, natural beauty, urban and remote life live close to each other.
Before the Spaniards arrived in the 15th century, Mexico had thousands of years of continuous civilizations that ended when the Aztec empire was defeated by the European conquistadors. They were slowly decimated by slavery and newly introduced diseases.
Mexico City with a population of 24 millions was originally built on the site of Aztec capital Tenochtitlan. The temples and palaces of the Aztecs were pulled down and the materials used to build what is today the historical city.
the Mexican population is made of Gachupinos ( Spaniards born in Spain) Criollos (Spaniards born in Mexico) Mestizos and Indians. The Indian population are marginalized and are still fighting for basic human rights.

the Mexican gastronomy is a fusion of Indigenous and Spanish cooking at a time when the Spanish cuisine was influence by more of 800 years of Arab occupation.
The basic indigenous elements still remain as a major source of food such as corn, avocados and vanilla amongst others.For meat they had only turkey until pork, chicken and beef was introduced from Europe.
Mexican food served overseas differ from the one cooked locally as it was changed to satisfy the large American taste and it worked its way around the world.
