areas: the industrial zone and the residential area, planned for housing of Civac's workers. He was appointed United States Ambassador to Mexico by Coolidge from 1927 to 1930. He was widely hailed as a brilliant ambassador, mixing popular appeal with sound financial advice. In 1927, he invited famed aviator Charles A. Lindbergh for a goodwill tour of Mexico. His daughter, Anne Morrow (Anne Morrow Lindbergh), was introduced and soon engaged to Lindbergh. To thank the town of Cuernavaca, where Morrow had a weekend house, Morrow hired the Mexican artist Diego Rivera to paint a mural inside the Palace of Cortez (Palacio de Cortés). Born in an archetypal "barrio" in Mexico city's (Mexico City) downtown, Carlos Sandoval was used to deal with harrowing, extreme social and cultural situations already from his childhood, a fact to be later reflected in his work. Enriquez Maru, "Interview Carlos Sandoval (Deutsche Untertitlen), HD Video, 2010, 24:15", http: vimeo.com 17957124" He has lived mainly in Mexico City (1956–64), Cuernavaca City (Cuernavaca) (1964–78 and 1983-03), New York City (1979), Vienna, Austria (1980–82), Los Angeles CA (1983) and Berlin, Germany (2003- ). He is also a German citizen since 2009. Dissident at the Escuela Nacional de Música UNAM 1976-79 (classical guitar and composition) studied later composition (Composition (music)), analysis and theory (Music theory) privately with Julio Estrada (1985–90). He assisted also to several courses and private sessions with Brian Ferneyhough, Joji Yuasa, Peter Garland, Lorenc Barber, Leo Brower, François Bernard Mâche, James Tenney, Stefano Scodanibio, Iannis Xenakis and Conlon Nancarrow. Nevertheless, he is one of the few active Mexican composers of his generation that did not studied in Europe or the United States (United States of America) and does not have an academic degree in composition. Later he studied indeed in Europe: Piano tuning and building at the Bösendorfer Klavier Fabrik (Bösendorfer) in Vienna (1980–82). These studies ("and not the Vienna School (Second Viennese School)") ''Ibid.,'' Enriquez, Maru, 2010 changed his vision about music in general. As photographer he studied with Antonio Fabri (Analogue Lab, Vienna), Otto Sirgo (Zone System and analogue lab, Mexico City) and Color managment in digital photography (X-rite seminar, Germany). His work has been premiered or exposed mostly in Germany but also in Mexico, France, UK and The Netherlands. He has been fellow of the SNCA (Sistema Nacional de Creadores de Arte) (the highest Mexican Government recognition for Mexican artists) since 1999 with no interruption. He has been invited to countless activities and contemporary music festivals like Donaueschingen Musik Tage (1994, Germany), Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (2009, UK, festival´s highlight) and the Darmstadt Summer Courses (1990) in Germany, among others. He writes articles and essays on music and lately has been focused in the joint of music and video, "Lips" being his last piece. thumb 300px Alebrijes at the Pochote Market in the city of Oaxaca (File:Alebrijes in Oaxaca, Mexico 2009.jpg) '''Alebrijes''' ( WikiPedia:Cuernavaca Dmoz:Regional North America Mexico States Morelos Localities Cuernavaca Commons:Category:Cuernavaca

Teopanzolco is an archeological site located just east of the historic downtown of Cuernavaca. Its construction is dated to the year 1427, and it was an important ceremonial center during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries when the native Tlahuicas were dominated by the Aztecs. The site shows significant Aztec influence. It has a large pyramidal base, called the Gran Basamento, topped by two shrines, much like the Templo Mayor in Tenochtitlan. Only the stone columns

The organization has made constant declarations against privatizations in Mexico such as that of the telephone company, PEMEX, and the National University. In 2005, 60 archaeological sites in Cuernavaca, Morelos were published as heritage sites by the state of Morelos as a result of the work of the Frente Civico.

pesos. Pozole ''Pozole'' is a rich broth with meat, corn, and other vegetables. ''Pozolería El Barco'', one block away from the cathedral, serves very good green ''pozole'' (with pipián sauce). Try their ''tostadas de pata'' as well (crispy tortillas topped with pickled pig's feet). High-end The center of town has some excellent restaurants. Las Mañanitas is a Relais & Chateaux hotel with excellent if somewhat dated cuisine on a menu that never changes. Famous for its large garden with free-roaming peacocks and other large birds, Las Mañanitas is well worth a visit for cocktails or a meal. On the main square facing the Palacio de Cortes is Casa Hidalgo also serving excellent food. These restaurants serve a variety of dishes consisting of traditional Mexican and international fare. Trattoria Marco Polo, across the street from the cathedral, serves good Italian food and pizza. For about $60 US, Marco Polo offers a very large pizza (about 3 feet wide) loaded with everything. Definitely not something would find in Italy, it is however a sight to see and excellent to try if you are eating with a large group there. El Faisan on Emiliano Zapata is another excellent high-end restaurant featuring Yucatecan food that is worthwhile visiting when in Cuernavaca. La Provence in a boutique hotel of the same name a short distance south of the zocolo is Cuernavaca's leading French restaurant. In the downtown 30m down the street Calle Fray Bart De Las Casas from Plazuela del Zacate, on the right hand side on corner, there is a small nameless place with open grill that has indescribably delicious arrachera and tortas hamburguesas. $135 for arrachera as of March 2011. For the best hamburgers in town, however, you'll need to go to either La Casa de Hamburguesa on Teopanzolco (inexpensive) or Meson Gaucho (expensive), on Domingo Diez across from Cuernavaca's only Walmart store, which features Argentine steaks in addition to the great burgers. Drink *Bars Los Arcos on the Zocalo is popular on Tuesdays when students converge on the open bar cafe with live salsa music and cheap drink. For a more sophisticated evening try Reposado with its comfortable lounge beds in a beach-style setting with a restaurant on the ground level. REPOSADO IS NOW CLOSED La Bola is a typical Mexican cantina with live Norteno and Mariachi music every night between 7 and 10PM. 2 for one promotions daily between 2 and 9PM and very cheap food drink packages. On average $400 pesos buys a generous plate of food for the table to share and a bottle of alcohol or 20 bottles of beer. Nachos is another example of a cantina famous for its very large glasses also try Clamatoria. As of March 2011 Nachos had quit La Taurina and Crudalia are very simple bars that sell cheap booze by the litre. Expect plastic tables and chairs and very few frills but a good atmosphere. *Night Clubs On the weekends an influx of visitors arrive in Cuernavaca from Mexico City and head to the night clubs. El Alebrije is a chain of nightlubs with a branch in Cuernavaca. It is frequented primarily by a wealthy and young crowd. Cover is $100 pesos with prices for bottles starting at $700 pesos. The door staff at high-end clubs are often quite difficult. Men arriving without female companionship at a club will generally have trouble getting although foreigners are often given preference. Alebrije is open on Fridays and Saturdays, doors open at 10PM. Barbazul is a large indoor outdoor venue with a cf $100 after midnight. Like Alebrije it is frequented by a young and wealthy crowd and many foreigners. Taizz is the highest end club with a cover of $200 pesos. As with the previous two it is frequented by a similar crowd. All the clubs have valet parking and taxis outside, however these tend to charge a lot. Bottle prices are generally the same in the 3 venues. It is usual to order a bottle and occupy a table and few people buy individual drinks at the bar. Tipping the waiter is essential and problems may arise if the waiter feels he has been undertipped - 10% is the accepted amount. These three clubs play an eclectic mix of music from 80's Mexican music to American Hip Hop. Mambo cafe is open Wednesday to Saturday with Salsa sance classes on Wednesdays between 6 and 9PM. The most popular night for Mambo cafe is Thursday when it is often very full. The Store is a new club and very different from the first three. Very basic the club has no waiters and is self-service from the bar. It is popular and well attended. In all the clubs either inside the grounds or directly outside are stalls selling hotdogs and hamburgers and tacos are never far away. Most clubs close their doors at 3AM and do not allow access after this hour. However it is usual for the last person to leave the clubs at around 5 or 6AM. In most clubs in Cuernavaca women do not pay cover. * WikiPedia:Cuernavaca Dmoz:Regional North America Mexico States Morelos Localities Cuernavaca Commons:Category:Cuernavaca


taking power

 February 1913 against President (President of Mexico) Francisco I. Madero and his vice president, José María Pino Suárez. After deposing President Porfirio Díaz and taking power in 1911, Mexicans expected Madero to make widespread changes in government but were surprised and disappointed to find Madero following many of the same policies and employing the same personnel as the Díaz government. This eventually resulted in revolts against the Madero regime. Madero's

'''Cuernavaca''' (

The city was nicknamed the "City of Eternal Spring" by Alexander von Humboldt in the nineteenth century. It has long been a favorite escape for Mexico City and foreign visitors because of this warm, stable climate and abundant vegetation. Aztec emperors (Tlatoani) had summer residences there, and today many famous people as well as Mexico City residents maintain homes there.

The name "Cuernavaca" is derived from the Nahuatl phrase "Cuauhnāhuac" and means "surrounded by or close to trees". The name eventually was Hispanicized to Cuernavaca. The coat-of-arms of the municipality is based on the pre-Columbian pictograph emblem of the city which depicts a tree trunk (''cuahuitl'') with three branches, with foliage, and four roots colored red. There is a cut in the trunk in the form of a mouth, from which emerges a speech scroll, probably representing the language Nahuatl and by extension the locative suffix "-nāhuac", meaning "near".
