On the southeastern border of Mexico City is another city called Chalco in State of Mexico.
It technically has a longer name but I call it Chalco.
It has a bad reputation of being a shithole.
Violent. Corrupt cops. All of it.
Anyway, I visited "just because."
I had an Uber driver take me around to a bunch of nearby volcanoes for photo taking and then drop me off at Chalco.
Took a bunch of photos.
Got into a moto taxi when then to take more photos as I had him drive me around most of the main avenues.
Visit the main spots like this museum they got, some shopping mall, a volcano nearby, a park and a bunch of other stuff.
Saw a street market.
The place looked OK.
Got a haircut and the dude told me that the place is actually on the up because, according to him, most people in the city would commute to CDMX for work 7 years ago but now you got more local work in the area supposedly.
Finished my night getting a beer in some random bar before getting an Uber home.
All around, it's an OK place to visit.
You don't need more than a day or half a day here at most.
Anyway, enjoy some of the photos I took of the place below.
