The history of paris and it has period rooms which are are very fun to walk through and just all sorts of of relics from hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of years of the city's history and you explained in your book the littler museums of paris. That barron houseman actually had something to do with the creation of this collection. Or 'cause houseman. I think of as the guy who who brought parasol of these grand boulevards and all of this uniform architecture where you've got the same amount of floors in the in the nice Slate roofs and so on Did he recognize that. All this development is going to bulldoze some of the heritage of the of the city. You know it's it's funny because he is. He's really criticized for destroying medieval peres but at the same time was was looking to create a place that would preserve some of the history and that actually incorporated elements from some of the buildings. He took down in. The carnival has more items than the liuw actually. So they've got plenty to show off in that museum. Yeah their reserves are insane. There's no bench and that goes back to the sixteen hundred and they actually took over a second. It's actually now To urban mansions that are combined by little walkway. So if you want sort of. Just your quintessential kind of historical museum for paris carnival as a good one absolutely now. Another one is the museum of the middle ages museum to clooney and that's actually built on the remains of a third century. Roman bath reminding us. That peres was a roman town. Yes it it is also something that that started from a private collection like a lot of museums did and has just grown and grown and is a really special and unique place to visit and it's never crowded it's amazing to me. It's exquisite art of the middle ages. This is the museum of the middle ages in paris was so important in the middle ages. And it's right there in the in the left bank. You can walk to it in ten minutes from all the touristy stuff you do in the latin quarter

How Remote Work Is Impacting Federal Cybersecurity
"So it was like to start by getting the story of our guests. Cybersecurity journey in their own words are back. Did your interested in computers in tech start and what initially got you excited to learn more about cybersecurity so actually i was coming out of college. I'm gonna date myself here back in nineteen ninety and i had gone in to college getting a computer science and maths degree then it turned to math. And then i realized it just wasn't making me happy what i was doing And i ended up adding some communications classes and i came out with this some kind of a hybrid degree rape that included. Lots of things And what i found was. I had an adviser in college. Who was fabulous. Rick dilmun if he still out there who really helped me understand. The importance of a diverse team both diverse ethnically as well as Skill wise and one of the early projects.

Why We Have Different Accents With Dr. Katherine Kinzler
"Does the brain tend to attach so strongly to whether somebody is speaking with a new york accent southern accent versus something else entirely like. Why do we care about that so much. Yeah so you know it's one of the most fascinating findings in this. I think are that we have a what people sometimes call a close to home advantage in dialect recognition. And so. i think it makes sense when you think about it right so if you grew up say in new york you might be able to differentiate a new york accent from a boston accent from somebody from the american south whereas you know speaking of somebody who grew up in the east coast of the us. I hear a bunch of different accents from the uk and they sound kinda hard to me to disentangle right. you know. I can say british in some way but it's hard for me to know exactly what it means whereas if you live in the uk you have all of these kinds of cultural and sociolinguistic stereotypes about different people. So what i take from that. Is that this close to home advantage. It's kind of this idea that we detect social differences that are socially useful in our lives. And so you know picking out. Who's from around here. And who's not the way you speak can basically instantly suggest somebody else whether you know we come from the you know. We have similar experiences versus. We don't so in some ways you know also might be seen as giving some real information about who you are where you came from. You might be able to guess stay where somebody grew up but also there are so many cultural stereotypes that we have about different groups speakers and so often those are evoked. We don't even realize it. So you might think oh. This person just sounds a little bit nicer smarter taller. Whatever it is. And it's actually the cultural stereotype coming through and not really any signal. On their

"How would you rate the episode in general I? Mean we don't usually do that. Yeah, we don't would. You would you? Let's let's do it. Let's do it in terms of this being the fourth. Anthology you know loose Improv. Okay. Didn't have the improvisational feel. I, think as much. But how would you kind of stack it against the other? We'll call them inter. Dimensional. Cable. Type episodes. If we're going based off of. How much I laughed. I think the I think the anthology pieces of of all the other ones are generally stronger. I think the Bechtel test is is one of the best ones. The, the other like little the other little scenes especially in the fifth wall portion. I think a really really cool in there really interesting and I would love to see those fleshed out knowing that they they may not This is kind of sad but really that whole epic fight with snowball and versus a cat Max, and then that that panning shot from citadel of Rick's or you know, said it all morning whatever going. Skinny across you see all the the risks and you see the Aclu Zorba resort and like that that's that's really bad ass I would love to catch that. But. I think they'll. They'll be fine with whatever they end up choosing at the end of seventy episodes and they're going to do great things I I think that. This episode shows that they they're capable of creating epic conclusions in epic. You know. Moments. It's just let's let them do it. Yeah. Let's not try to create it for them in advance. Let's enjoy their creative process and the fruits of. Yeah. So so do I rank it out of those episodes I would I would for what I look for in those episodes I would probably put it. Put it forth but I put it forth because it's not as it's not that. What I fell in love with with those first three I guess yeah. I I think the the improvisational part of some of those episodes really to me makes those episodes when you can tell somebody was in a booth without a script just like saying random stuff or or or when they go really off like. Book and they're and and it to the point where they're not even like really performing anymore but they leave it in and still animated those breaks to me are some of the highlights of those episodes. So I. Didn't really feel like we got any of that I feel like this was definitely anthology and it it took a lot of really obscure ideas and jam them altogether and I think it was really effective in a great.

"Consumerism. So so we we spent some time with Jesus and then. People obsessed with buying things as as we as we see, Rick and morty get saved and close the portal behind them There is this awesome reveal for the train actually being a toy. When they try to pull the lever on the on the console and they can't hit any buttons and they and they tear away that sticker I just thought that was so wonderfully done as a way to be like This is this is yet another. Layer inside. and. Then we see the the story train running its course around the the smiths living room as as rick and Morty. Are Getting Ready to settle down to watch some international cable. Yeah. I in the. Jesus is like I want to do what I always do get the hell out of her get out of here. Breaks the train. Very interesting this chemical up saw it on Reddit I saw some of our Po-, show comments on twitter youtube. They're. MORTY talks about taking the train back the breaks and ex like no, you're not listening at all go buy me another one. Nobody's buying anything with virus going around very very current and topical comment about you know Cova nineteen and everybody. Being, locked down I, I would love an you know maybe we'll jeopardize some of the followers we have on twitter I would love to to know. Where in the process that line was was put in the show and and how recent it was that they they made the edit because I feel like when the show usually written, there's no way they could have known like the where the country.

"It's is it just me or early making fun of the Bell Test in America wrote we rock ourselves through through morty and I don't know if she meant like were mocking ourselves a Aka women or she's mocking themselves as writers like the writers trying to build strong female characters and going so far. To just. Simplify. It to my special time heavy flow. Yeah I. I think by US I think she meant to show collectively the people making rick and Morty and sometimes the ways that they've tried to give them agency but have have fallen pretty flat yeah yeah. And they immediately follow that with. The that they have. Their two men with penises and they have agency Jesse has two penises and all the agents say. Yes, indeed. Yes. All right. So this gets us into a couple of collections of stories. I call these wants to quickies off the train. These are the glimpses that we get as rick and morty are are fighting was the story Lord. And and being thrown out of the train and and and the thrust into some different quick clips. The first one is I, just called it egg escape morty. This is something that showed up in the trailer for these five episodes that seemed like it could potentially be something really big and then was really not much of anything. Is 'cause but I, I will say and Kudos to the the animation team the way that they transitioned with the action of like in this one more trying to slide under a door, and then that transitioned him being pulled back into the train the way the way that they did that between these scenes. Amazingly done by fan fantastic stuff. Yeah. Those those transitions are worth the price of admission as far as I'm concerned I'm not not not an animator by any stretch artist by any stretch, but but those. Similar to. The season four premiere Rick Dyer repeat. Just. There are certain things and animation that just like God that that's so that's so good and that's so so talented and those transitions just like I tried pausing and slow mowing. So I could see the those how did that in? It's just Incredible to me. Of those of those clips definitely A. I love that they introduced. In Vietnam getting some kind of mind bending drug. And then and then coming back to it, then rick going someplace where he's he's created a drug and he just he's hurt so many people and then Moore's character from Vietnam comes back who is now not a Vietnam and kills them like it's okay. It's okay. Nothing's real nothing that stab remember remember core truth that you're getting beat up on a train. Classic stuff and then we moved from that that fistfight into beyond the fifth wall This is where the story Lord has them captured and we get a couple of a couple more quick scenes as he's he's tearing continuity. Straight out of the the souls of Rick and Morty The first one is is a heartwarming scene where summer goes off to college. And Rick is really really really touched by it It's. I, I I.

"They don't look the same necessarily, but you know it makes me it makes me wonder like, are you? I I hope there's a tie there or the so it doesn't feel like like you ran out of ideas. So quickly that you also had a VAT of acid guy unrelated to yeah. Yeah. He he's only got like four different types of village and and one of the four always has a giant battery. Bassett just it's just what he does. It's part of his style. Rick has every he has. He has a rotation, has a pattern like morty gets every tenth episode ten adventure. Every fourth villain is a there's a VAT of acid. It's just it's just the thing he does I mean I thought that was I thought it was cool. Seen Rick doesn't speak. He just communicates in Farts otherwise You know as it was, it was a good primer to kind of get you thinking about Cuda ways and then we get what was the the tease for the episode this was share on social media. Before the episode airs entitled Wreck Saves. Christmas but this is the planes, trains and automobiles. Christmas return with what's his name Google Gumi Gumby Gumby Gumby. The gooby every time I hear Gumby I think of there's those really crappy animations of like Donald Duck and Goofy, but his name is gooby. We? Spiderman Guba spider-man. I I think it's great that they're all sitting around and the train discussing the different ways that rick saved Christmas and and I. Think that the Christmas episodes of Rick and Morty. Are the greats so yeah I don't know it's nice nod to that as well. then we start to. Understand the episode a little bit more tickets please the ticket taker rips his shirt off and exposes his his gutters to to rick and Morty and After after the fight he is his his is upper half anyway is smashed outside of the train and we he finds himself in a familiar place blips in Chits where he basically takes off like a roy.

"It took you by surprise you. It took a minute for you to figure out like they didn't just do like a booty shaking intro like, yeah, we're doing another. Episode. Took almost until the first ad break before you really understood that this was going to be at not a conventional rick and morty adventure and. I thought I you know I. I Love Anthologies. Anthology Shows Anthology comics I love I love very short standalone stories that have a beginning middle and end. Cool bite-size. I don't have to dedicate forty hours of my life to catch up on three seasons of ozark. I don't need to do that because it's still feels very specific and I feel like whatever whatever the net flicks situation is in your current Cova Quarantine back there I feel like maybe ozarks involved and I don't want to pick sides I watched too. So it's it's pretty it's pretty good but the three seasons is daunting of of anything. But So when going going into like. Okay. It's going to be a it's going to be. It's going to be a more. He's mind blowers slash international cable, some kind of an episode. So I I'm all in on it so far but you me. A majority of read it and a lot of other folks that I, ten minutes and I think when when Rick and Morty are the other characters and then they morty is now is a check and he takes off the deflate boobs right And then it starts jumping around all over the place. Immediately like. Okay all right. You know what? Let me not think about this too hard right now let's just go with the flow. Let go the flow. And and see where it takes us But yeah, it was like. Oh you. Don't worry about it. Let's just enjoy this for the first time. Right? It is strange because there is even though it is one of these clip show type episodes they they mentioned inter dimensional cable twice they they call it out specifically in this episode I think as a way to reinforce that this is not a traditional episode. This is this season's version of inter dimensional cable. But it at has a narrative feel throughout it where..

"Seven seven three three three. Seven four to five is our phone number and you can email us anytime talk. Radio Rick Steves DOT COM next up we check in with you. Our listeners about your latest travel plans. Thanks for coming along its travel with Rick Steves every once in a while. We like to check in with you are traveling listeners here on travel with Rick Steves. Tell us where you're looking to go next and if you need a little help figuring out what to plan for he's calling from Prescott Arizona Hi Casey Hi Rick. I'm planning what I'm hopefully is going to be an epic trip to fame. I wanted to know what like small villages or towns should I make sure I see and then if I had to choose between Madrid Barcelona which one should I spend martime man okay well. Spain's a huge country and there's thousands of villages that I'm sure ordered delightful. I I gotta be honest. I don't know a lot of the villages in Spain but I'll say you want to kind of think. Of What region are you interested in. I mean the parents mountains are just fascinating. If you want that sort of Alpine Spain I mean there's a lot of traditional no culture hiding out up there. There's different regions Spain. If you go to subway sandwich shop in Madrid you might find menu with four different languages and they're all Spanish languages ages. He'd have Catalan for the people in in the northeast around Barcelona. You'd have a bask- for people in the Basque region and you'd have gallician for the Celtic people in the North West and when you travel in the northwest there are beautiful little hideaway medieval towns that are part of the Santiago de Compostela and they are the villages that people will walk to or bicycle to these days when they're doing that trek medieval pilgrimage trail the most famous villages is there the most classic and rewarding villages are these whitewashed villages in the hills down in the south and end Lucia to a lot of Americans their image of Spain really and Lucia. That's the quintessential Spanish sort of Flamingo world. The famous region in Lucia is the root of the Pueblo spunk host host the root of the Whitewashed Hill towns and you're jumping off point is the biggest of those towns that would be Rhonda. It's no secret a lot of tourists go to run but it is just just an amazing town on a gorge with dramatic bridge connecting the two sides of the gorge with the modern town on one side and an older town the other side and from there you can drive have into the hills and find these just gorgeous dramatic. Whitewashed Hill towns that were put on the top of these hills for defensive purposes so personally I would go to the root of the publicity bunkers. I've always loved that near Sa- via near Rhonda near Arcos while you're done Arcos is famous for the Spanish riding school school and also for Sherry. No you're talking about Madrid and what were you thinking Madrid and Barcelona. I couldn't decide which one I should spend more time in or maybe just forget one and spend all my time in the other. Barcelona is suffering lately because it's just too popular the mayor's actually thinking about how can we keep. I from flooding into our city. The local people are actually getting a little bit ornery about tourists changing the character of all of their their neighborhoods Barcelona's a place where AIRBNB has come in and driven up the the rents. I mean Airbnb doesn't drive it just gives landlords and opportunity to make a lot more money renting out to travelers instead of renting out to the local pensioners and so on so that drives away the local people into the suburbs and the characteristic neighborhoods are suddenly without the the local population that makes it really characteristic and instead of real produce in the markets you've got slushy isn fruit on skewers and that kind of thing for the tourists so you know you go to. Barcelona anything about about the Romblon and you think about the book career market and all that and it's still there but if you were there twenty years ago it's it's not the same thing because now it's just overrun by tourists having having said that. I love Barcelona but he really got anticipate. It's going to the streets are just going to be mobbed with with tourists whereas Madrid feels just more like a a workaday capital. Madrid good to me is you feel the pulse of Spain in Madrid beautifully. I love the architecture of the skyscrapers on the grand via and you can just trace the evolution of Skyscraper Architecture through the Twentieth Century one decade at a time as you walk down the grand via in Madrid. You've got the greatest collection of paintings anywhere in Europe at the product and and you've got a palace that used to house the most powerful king in in all of Europe into Palestinian rivals Versailles in Paris in Sean Brennan in Vienna Anna and that's the Royal Palace in Madrid you've got plenty of opportunities to enjoy the nightlife and the TAPAS and Flamenco the best Flamenco in Spain bane is famously offered in Madrid and you've got a chance. If you want to go out and see the bullfight. That's the the most visible arena in all of Spain and you've I've got tight trips from Madrid that I think are more interesting than the side trips from Barcelona within an hour. You can go to Toledo you can go to Salamanca you can go to the Valley of the fallen in El escorial the big palace of the Inquisition Palace the stern serious nonsense palace outside of Madrid. There's just I love to see in Madrid so I think I'd say if you're choosing between Barcelona Madrid. I think I'd go to Madrid well. I have to say I'm sold definitely be spending spending my time in Madrid. It's going to be my first time and all my friends have gone and told me how amazing it just wanted a little more detail. Remember in Spain. you've gotTA gotta go with the local tempo of life. Okay it's hot in the middle of the day the elite WanNa be indoors or take a nap or Siesta and then be out in the evening things are it just really hopping in the evening and there's something just wonderful about having the whole community out for the CEO in the evening when I'm doing my research for my guidebook if I'm trying to look at restaurants at noon and at six they're just empty. I mean if anything the staff will be eating but you come back at two o'clock for lunch and they start to serve and for dinner. You can have nine o'clock or ten o'clock. You'll have the dinner one thing to remember. If you go early it'll be terrific in the restaurants which is not bad. It's it's easier. It's a a little more relaxed and then if you go later it won't be touristy at all. It'll be filled with local. The same restaurant can have two different personalities and for a lot of trustee. You have to be pretty pretty aggressive. If you're trying to get served at ten o'clock all the local people are in there and and they get favored by the wait staff because they can speak directly and they know they're. They're just good solid customers. Customers whereas tourists are going to be kind of maintenance and everything so not to say you shouldn't go there but if you go in the evening you're going to have to know a few Spanish words and you're GonNa have to Beller it up to that bar and demand end some service. If you're going to get any respect I like the challenge I think all the Oh that route go for it. That's so good. Also there's a lot of sort of entrepreneurs now that are into different kinds of travel experiences. I think wherever you're going in Spain if you go to tripadvisor type under the city and then go to things to do I do not take very much serious consideration of eating and sleeping places in trip adviser but I really like the things to do section because then you can see. There's a cooking school cool. Are there's a a walking tour or oh. There's a some sort of a special experience with this or that slice of the culture anybody WHO's trying to make money in tourism. We'll have their little business listed in trip advisor things to do and you can browse through that and then you can go over to that website and take advantage of that and and that's how I find doubt about a lot of great activities while I'm in these towns year after year. I love that idea I like being more engrossed in the culture and celebrating the smaller all our businesses as opposed to the large. Oh yeah everywhere that is so important because you know the large companies they have the connections with the hotels and the gut their advertising all over the place and they're in with the booking agencies and so on but the smaller feisty little mom and pop businesses I find they are just really creative. They love their work and the we're done with that. You feel like you've got a friend in that town got to celebrate that tenacity as a small business good for you have a great time. Thank you bye yeah. We're checking in with our listeners to hear where you're thinking of travelling next where at eight seven seven three three three seven four to five and by e mail you can reach us at radio at Rick Steves. Dot Com in Dorothy is calling in from Ottawa in Ontario. Hi Dorothy thank you for taking my call. I just going because I like to know what my sisters and I should be doing. When they visit Amsterdam for a few days well Amsterdam you could spend a lot of time in Amsterdam and you could could spend just as much time outside of Amsterdam remember. The Netherlands is really small and very well accessible by public transportation so Amsterdam could be your hub and you could side trip out to any number of places depending on your interest. Okay I'd be interested in seeing dykes and how that works. There's a company that I I love in Amsterdam which is called a wetland safari and wetland safari is a chance to go on a canoe ride in the polder land with a local guide who will explain to you how the detrick claimed the land and and what the little communities were like and are like today in the you know the rural countryside. It's called polder land that is what was reclaimed from the sea and the company is called Wetland Safaris. It's run by a woman named Miguel A. J. E. L. I believe but you go canoeing from village to village and you realize what these charming little towns or hamlets are like and you approach them by. Water also when you're out wonderful in when you're out on that you you realize that it's sort of a bog land and there's a we've of organic material that makes kind of a big Saad Topsoil and and under that is water and you get out of the canoe and Mai L. takes you to a little point where you can jump up and down on the side and you the whole place is like a trampoline because because you're literally on a mattress over the water and I love that and she's just a petite canoe and she takes a long pole and she pushes. Che's it through the sod and then she shoves it down ten or twelve feet because it gets through the layer of sod and it just hits water and it demonstrates this the Dutch terrain that a lot of us are oblivious to so that's a fun way to get out of the city and connect with the countryside far from Amsterdam again actually leaves from Amsterdam. You meet her behind the train station and she takes you on a public bus out her little depot where she has her canoes and and then you get on the news and you go paddling around and you get out and demonstrate this here and you get out and check out a windmill there and you get out and have a picnic lunch here and then you get out and pedal through all the ducks and then you're Beckett your spot and she takes you back dempster down. It's a lot of fun. It sounds great but that's just one of many kinds of alternatives are excursions. You can have from Amsterdam you can also go directly out to the ocean front and they're you've got beach resorts and some of them are sand dunes national parks and desolate kind of hikes on on the wide open beach and others are really really crowded and popular and multigenerational festivals on the Sand Scheveningen is a suburb of of Rotterdam and everything within an hour of Amsterdam. It seems like on on one of the trains and the fun thing about Dutch Public Transit. Is You hardly need the train sketch Africa's four times an hour trains go everywhere and everything's within thirty or forty minutes away. Everything's flat and you're out in the in the countryside and in no time and then pretty soon. You're at another another town nearby. Harlem is a great town disagreed town. Rotterdam was a big city that was bombed flat in World War. Two has been rebuilt sent in a modern way in fact. It's Nice Ace to compare Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

"Raphael fell as a really interesting neighborhood to visit to because it's a very old neighborhood. It was one of the first places when the aristocratic families wanted to start moving out of the CENTRO. They started moving into these new suburban neighborhoods right now. They feel like they're right next door. You know that's walkable between the Century Study Cassandra file but at that time they built their mansions there it was like moving out into the country and now all of those buildings they've been there for hundreds of years and now they have mechanic shops in little careers in them. It's a really vibrant neighborhood hood with lots of people walking around the street there some cool coffee shops but mostly. It's just a lot of old time places. That's a really fun place to explore on foot. If you wanted to go to some real neighborhood in a random way that was a working class neighborhood with vibrant markets and just a slice of life of urban Mexico. What would you recommend fail. L. Is a good working class neighborhood to explore as is the Santa Maria Larry Beta which is just a little bit further out from the center and if you're looking for some vivid a little slice of life what would it be. I mean I remember these old fashioned tortilla machines that were just so beautiful so rickety and they would just be cranking out endless bliss so little produce yeah definitely lots of those. I think there's a lot of places in Mexico City where you can find really long running vibrant culture. Are you know there's tons of coffee. Shops Mexico grows a lot of coffee and there have always been a great coffee culture there so that you can you know walking down any neighborhood. Even the trendiest neighborhoods are still. We're gonNA find the old coffee shop with the old man eating pundits. You'll say sweet bread and having their coffee reading the paper. Those places are everywhere wrote that again. Tina's in your moon guidebook to Mexico City you wrote about how that tell you find a little intimate corner of the local cultures going to cuffy shop. What about CHAPULTEPEC multiple pack doc is Mexico City's gigantic urban park. It's more like a forest than apart. It's a beautiful park and it's also the sight of some of the most important museums in the the city notably the absolutely unmissable and absolutely spectacular anthropology museum. That's brings a lot of tourists to to pull back to spend a day or half a day wandering through the anthropology museum but it's also worth taking a spin around the park itself which is shaded by these old cypress trees that have been there for hundreds of years and it's actually been a park since the time of the machine pretended to cheat lawn the Aztec City the Mexico City to pull apart that the rulers would go out and spend a day in the country cheer and afternoon in the country so it's always sort of been this country and then later the Spanish did the same you mean didn't just take over a bunch of grumbling barbaric humans animals. I mean they were actually civilized in Mexico when when the Spaniards came in fact the Spanish were blown away when they saw the city of Tennessee line it was enormous and orderly and it had beautiful spectacular markets they couldn't believe in fact it was all ridden by canals. Isn't that an amazing easing thing to think that Europeans conned themselves into thinking that they just were you know invading heathens and giving Christian faith when when really these were very very sophisticated societies and beautiful cities in some cases Mexico City compared to Venice at the time and it had those canals and an amazing system of government and and criticize happened to be able to go in there and because of a few quirky little lucky breaks was able to conquer Mexico yeah and a lot of what we know about the city today or about ten feet long about the Aztec city is from the Spanish chronicles. You know they wrote about it. They were blown away by what they saw. When they came to ten feet long you can learn about that that the National Museum the event apology and that's in the Chapultepec area and I'll tell you if you're going out into the countryside and going to be visiting some of the ruins and so on you you gotta see this first and if you're not gonNA get the chance to go to the countryside then you need to see also it's just it's a beautiful museum and it's so important to gain an appreciation of Pre Columbian Mexico. That's right the report about the neighborhood called a Roma well. Roma is today probably the hippest coolest neighborhood in Mexico City but it was built originally in the nineteenth century so or the very beginning of the twentieth century actually so it's also a place with lots of gorgeous architecture a lot of ECLECTIC architecture some beautiful art nouveau architecture and for a long time. It was sort of working class neighborhood but little by little it's become the hot spot in Mexico City so this is the place to go. Oh you are a foodie. The Rome is the place to go. There's really wonderful restaurants of all types great nightlife bookshops great shopping cool boutiques six this is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie Mead and she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City and Julie in your book. You've got this wonderful list of top sites eight and Cantina culture mid the list of top quote site. Why would you rate Cantina culture right up there with all the great museums and galleries well. I think that it's a pretty unique and wonderful part of life in Mexico City. There are cantinas everywhere. CANTINAS can sort of range from a place that really is just sort of a barebones bar where the neighborhood locals are. GonNa get together and talk and play Dominos and everybody knows each other and they maybe served some peanuts to place where you can have a full sit down meal where every drink you order comes with a plate of food and some of Cantinas are even really good dining destinations nations the other well known in the city as a place to eat so it's a really low key he version. It's a nightlife sort of thing or afternoon evening place to go out and get got together but it's a very low key. It's like a Tapas bar in Spain is is it a vestige of the Spanish colonial experience well. That's a good question that I don't know the answer because because I mean you got you got that wonderful ambience you know you can just stay awhile atmosphere and fund workaday food in a Tapas bar in Spain. It sounds like you got the same thing in a Cantina in Mexico City. What's one tip to assure you fit rated in the Cantina culture well. The best tip would be to learn the lyrics some some popular songs in Spanish. That's kind of a tall order. I guess I'd say don't drink corona with lime. People don't do that Mexico. Lyon your corona. I think a lot of people going super local that you're being Super Gringo now. If you WANNA even be more locally you can drink the intoxicating drink to talk about the the Polka Polka fermented beverage made from the sap of the McGee cactus and it's been drunken Mexico since long before the conquest and it was really popular popular during the time when the machine ruled Mexico they were very upset me as people they wouldn't let anybody drink pool except for the priests and the nobleman but once they fell in the Spanish Spanish took over while everyone said great. Let's drink pool K. because it's a delicious sort of fizzy sort of slimy which sounds terrible but it's not it's delicious drink. Ah then is usually flavored with a fresh fruit gum guava mango sorte peanut flavor. It's a fermented sap of CACTUS. That's slimy and end with other fruits sounds so good but it's not as mode exploited to this. There's no big commercial production well. There can't be because pork is something it has to be drunk within a day or two of its productions so all of the Polka Mexico City is a big place to drink it because most of the Production Pool K. is in the ranch's right around Mexico. Oh City in the states around Mexico City and really it has to be pulled out of the CACTUS and fermented and within a day or two. It has to be consumed so there's no way to really export polka. Can you get drunk on it yeah. You got to drink a lot. Though it's a very low alcohol content you can feel the effects of it after usually at served actually very big glasses for that reason so you know feel it. Let's head no option. They got drunk on Pool K. Yes that's right interesting data. Eh the equivalent of a of a medieval kind of mead or something like that in Europe would be making a big comeback in in Mexico City which is becoming quite trendy. I would think vermouth and cocktails tails would be more hip but there's actually a mess drink. That's holding its own with its own burkhalter. Yeah well you get a little bit of both actually and nowadays so a traditional nope Acadia the places where they serve McKay. There are some that have been around for over one hundred years well. Those places are PULCI and nothing else and they serve it in the daytime. You know they open at ten o'clock in the morning. They're done by six. The pool is gone. That's a traditional Katya but now you can find lots of cocktail buyers that might have a pool in curtail on the Menu Julie. This has been such a great review of the neighborhoods of massive Mexico City congratulations on your guidebook the moon guidebook for Mexico City. Let's just finish with an idea where I can just I just want to kick back and be part of the parade of local life and either sit and enjoy watching it or actually be part of it on a Sunday afternoon. Where would I be in Mexico City. Well I would say the best place to go is to the CEO delivery format and then right next door to to put the pack the park because on Sundays the buzzer La Reforma is closed closed to automobile traffic. It's this big old boulevard that runs all the way through the city studded with monuments skyscrapers on either side and it runs through the park of triplet the pack and they closed it on Sundays so that people can ride bicycles. They can jog take their dog on a walk families. Go Out. There's music. It's really fun and and you get a really great Sunday vibe everybody comes out and then you can pop into the park where it's a veritable party on Sundays so really family family oriented place people are picnicking there flooding little boats on the lakes there. I think that's a wonderful place spent a Sunday so the Paseo de reform a boulevard Lavar close to cars on a Sunday were filled with people enjoying a beautiful afternoon and then from there head over to Chapultepec Park. That's what I would recommend sounds good. Thanks thank.

"Will open the phones at eight seven seven three three three rick to check in on your travel plans in just a bit but first we're finding adventures in the new world with tips for experiencing Mexico City One neighborhood at a time that's next on travel with Rick Steves. The ancient capital of the Aztec Empire is now the massive capital city of Mexico off Mexico City has grown into an important cultural and business hub. You could even didn't say the most influential city Latin America. There's more than one hundred and fifty museums gorgeous parks and some of the most vibrant markets and hip eateries in the Americas. It's a sprawling metropolis of some twenty million and it's full of surprises contradictions that make the city worth the effort. It requires to explore. We're joined now now. By Julie Mead she writes the Moon Guidebook to Mexico City. Julie fell in love with the city on her first visit some twenty years ago. She's here to help us explore Mexico City Eighty one neighborhood at a time duly. What was it about Mexico City that drew you in and what about it made you WANNA leave. Californian actually lived there for ten years well. It's it's hard to say exactly. It's the city like no other in the world and I was a young woman early out of college and I traveled there for the first time and and the energy of the place the fact that it was so close to my my home in California growing up and yet felt so different so foreign so many worlds away those things really drew me in and I wanted to feel a change in my life in that city just felt like it could bring it about. It felt powerful every time I fly there. I'm just you you connect from Houston or wherever and it's you're there in a couple of hours and you realize wow this is a completely different cultural capital and it's not even on the radar of so many American travelers so many people go to Cancun or the resorts on the West Coast and they're missing something when they get Mexico City. What's The vibe lately and what are the Challenges Challenges for the American visitor. What you're describing is true but it is beginning to change. A lot of people have recently recognised. Mexico City is a wonderful place to visit culturally culturally Colin narrowly so tourism has been taking off especially with that sort of younger hipster crowd. You've got a lot of cool bars lots of great food restaurants tons of museums and galleries a bunch of opened in the last decade so you're getting a lot more tourism than say when I first moved there in two thousand one rare you would see a tourist maybe in the centre with their backpack looking at the ruins or at the anthropology museum but now people go for all sorts it's of reasons they go to go out may go for the food they go to checkout galleries and underground poetry readings so it's definitely changed over the past twenty years now when you fly in it seems like it sprawls forever in fact it's one of my favorite views at an airplane window is coming into Mexico City because he just think whole twenty million Ryan people or whatever it is but you can think of Mexico City as a collection of neighborhoods and does make it a little easier doesn't it it certainly does it's very provincial in a way you can go from one neighborhood to another and each one feels like its own distinct city with its own community and vibe and things to do their glasses go through them because your book covers the city so well it pulls it down to size and we can deal with one neighborhood at a time first of all you have the central historical district. What is that well. That's the oldest district in the city five hundred years ago. When the Spanish arrived in the Valley of Mexico there was a little island in the middle of a huge lake and that was the Aztec City the F. penalty plan that city is what today is considered the central story for the very oldest neighborhood in Mexico City so that's where the Spanish vanish after the conquest built their own capital the capital of new Spain and they named it after the people who are living there the Sheikha people is where Mexico gets its name so that that little island became the founding neighborhood of Mexico City and it's got this beautiful old colonial architecture square this Colo.. That's does Okelo which is the main square was called the plaza my yard men throughout all of the colonial era and today it's called Zocalo because it adjoins the Cathedral resume or yes so if you if you've been to Spain. It's just it's another pleasant mayor. Every town has agreed square with the Cathedral facing it and and it just makes sense that there you would find the colonial area era palaces and chapels and grand buildings. It's a great area to explore from sightseeing point of view. Do you actually see any as tick remains he do and I think that's one of the most fascinating elements of visiting Mexico City in general right there right adjoining the cathedral which the Spanish built was at the most Holy Temple for the machine people and when Cortez Conquest did the city they raised the Masika city of ten not plan and they built their city right on top of it using the same bricks from the pyramids that they've Feld and they built over it so completely that everyone forgot where it was they forgot that the city was underneath the KISTA doors. They build right on the holy spot. We're exploring Mexico. City's neighborhoods travel with Rick Steves with Julie me. She's the author of the Moon Mexico City guidebook. Julie has spent more than a decade get into New Mexico's capital from its grand tractions to its earthy delays. You'll find web links to her work with this week. Show at Rick Steves dot com slash radio all right so you built your holy spot on top of their holy spot. That's the Zocalo and you you decorate the the big square with your colonial infrastructure and today as tourists four hundred five hundred years later. That's the number one thing to see probably but a lot of people are drawn to the What is it Alameda Central yeah well. I'll let made a centrale was the first big park in Mexico City. It was the first step public strolling park and that sort of on the western end of the central and the big attraction there in my opinion is the beautiful beautiful Palacio biggest artists the palace of fine arts within that does have Diego Rivera Mural in it a famous one that Rockefeller Commission and then threw a fit when it had communist themes in it and so they relocated it to that got palace but it's also just an amazing building a beautiful marble building and on the inside it has one of the most spectacular art deco interiors you can imagine so that's definitely worth a visit right on the element of also what colonial-era churches or their Zima pump several throughout the entire you're centrally story go and the Alameda that whole area is just replete with Beautiful Colonial Era Mansions Palaces churches a a lot of giant convents and churches were destroyed during the reforms of the nineteenth century but there still remains a religious buildings and convents all throughout the Centro. It's really fascinating fascinating and beautiful. It's one of the most captivating places in Mexico so one place that has historically been the tourist zone as Zona Rosa. What's that like these days. There's Zona Rosa has come and gone in terms of its fashionableness. It was very fashionable place to hang out in the sixties and seventies it was sort of the heart of Bohemian culture and since then it's become a little less noisy chaotic. It's right next to the salary forum. I saw a lot of business people passing through Kinda ugly end of tourism to me that the Warez neighborhood is a little more trendy. Isn't it right next to it. Yeah you know there's only Rosa has lots of architecture to but in the whereas you're seeing it preserved served in a more historical way. There aren't as many you know fast food restaurants. It's quieter. You know sort of gone that way more but that doesn't mean there aren't interesting things there you know there are some really great. Korean restaurants because that's where a lot of the local Korean population lives so there's things to explore even in places that seem like they are little down at heel now. They're still really interesting things to see. This is traveled Rick Steves. We're talking with Julie need her. Book is the Moon Guide to Mexico City and were learning just what to do when you get to this overwhelming the city when you do tackle the city neighborhood at a time. It is very reasonable to get your brain around it. Let's talk about San.

He's territory so they could actually go and pick it up and sell them as well they could have backed tracked from the Philippines and they considered that because they they were entering into Portuguese territory but the current go the opposite way and they weren't quite sure how to get back and if they had gotten back Mexico had not yet had been conquered by the Spaniards so they would have been on the west coast of Mexico and unable to cross to the Caribbean which they had control of Tour Guides Christina Dorothy from Lisbon Robert Wright who now lives in Seville are helping US celebrate five hundred years since Magellan's crew proved that you really could sail all the way around the world. There's more on our website at Rick Steves dot com slash radio just to wrap things up for the celebration and it's not a certain day. It's the next three years because that it was the duration of the voyage as travelers. What will we find Christine. Is there any celebrations what we look for. Well in Portugal. There will be not the celebration we've feel proud because he was portugeuse but we are not going to celebrate that because he's not a story call event that is for the Portuguese event historic so there's lots going on with experts and discovers but not specifically to celebrate five hundred years of Magellan and Robert in Spain Spain. We're definitely going to celebrate. Woo Hoo. Ah what will probably be going on for most of the three years is they have made a reproduction of the ship that made it back it was the now Victoria and that was the one vessel that did return and they have made a salable reproduction and it is at the dock in the port of severe and different cities around Spain and it will they've taken it around the world already but they will be going to different countries around the world and you might see it when you're in Spain because it will probably be traveling up in the Basque country as well okay okay you can actually walk on board see how the sailors lived compare the the size of the cabin where the captain slept and then everybody else left outside of really attempts to imagine what it was like from a gentleman and his guys five hundred years ago and all my traveling days have gone to civilian. I've seen that great port there with the Golden Tower and it's been so evocative to me but there's never been an old boat there now. We've got an area. There's never been a more perfect time Robert Reich Christina dorte. Thank you so much yes.
