Victor Gamboa, an environmentalist and tour guide from Culinary Backstreets, is trying to preserve Xochimilco and the farmer’s traditional way of life. Victor tells Brent about how the islands were constructed and how visitors can see this amazing part of Mexico City that’s 7 times the size of New York’s Central Park. Plus, he shares his taco recommendations and why you need to leave room in your luggage when you visit Mexico City. [Ep 291]
