The city of Mexico City is located in the northeasternmost part of Mexico City. It is part of the state of Lower California and is its administrative center. Founded in 1903, it took nearly 50 years for the city to achieve city status. The city is close to the U.S. border and is matched by the American city of Calecucco, on the other side of the border. The most favorable time to visit Mohikkala is in the spring months, and also in October. Its a time when there isnt the unbearable heat thats common during the season. The aerospace, automobile, food, and textile industries are also active. The mechemicals have been recognized by cultural and educational institutions. The Cathedral of St. Mary of Holocaust is an architectural landmark. The local House of Culture often hosts art exhibits and musical performances. Until now, the Kokokopas have remained on the outskirts of the city. In the mid-19th century, investigations of the local topography began here. It had to do with the planned construction of the Southern Railway. During the geological works, deposits of planting rocks were discovered. Because of the harsh climate, the area was not inhabited until the late 19th century.

In the early 20th century it was decided to build a canal through the Delta de Alameo. It was to connect the Clolorado River with the dry basin. The land was brought in by migrants from other areas of the country and farmers who had been given land to farm and cultivate arable land. After the canal was established, it was used to grow fruits, vegetables, and cotton. The Japanese and Indians were brought in to farm the land. At the same time, the textile industry was developing here. After the creation of the state of Lower California, Mexicali was its administrative center.

Mexicali (op. cit. Mexicali, the capital of Mexicos state of Lower California, is located in the northeastern part of Mexico City on the border with the United States. Mexico City was founded not long ago, — in 1903; and as early as 1952 it was declared the capital of the state. Today it is one of the most prosperous cities in Mexico; a trip there will be as interesting and enriching as a cheap vacation in Petersburg. In 2010, there were 789,775 people in Mexico City.

Walking to Mexico City is most enjoyable during spring months and also during October, when the air temperature in the city is at its most comfortable. From May to September, the weather in Mexico City is extremely hot, with a thermometer column that can reach +40 °C. The temperature in December, the coldest month in Mexico, is +13 — this time of the year is not °C; Its not as comfortable, but the flow of tourists going through the U.S. border decreases in the winter, and theres more chance of renting inexpensive accommodations.

In contrast to Central Mexico, Mexico City cant boast of quarters with a beautiful columnar architectural structure; Perhaps the oldest church in the city — the Cathedral of the Virgin Mary of St. Mary. One quarter to the north of the cathedral is the local House of Culture, where, just as in the Causa de la Trouveau Center in Trinidad, the Cuban city of Cuba, the musicians perform. The House of Culture also hosts art exhibits.

The Cultural Center and the Municipal Cultural and Art Center are also of great cultural significance. The Museum of Natural History at the Universitys Local Museum exhibit focuses on the natural history of Lower California; it also illuminates ethnographic aspects of life in the region. About 85 kilometers west of Michaquel, La Rumorosa is surrounded by mountains and is considered a popular place for active recreation. An unforgettable experience will be enjoyed by those who come to Michaela in October, during the Festa del Sol Festival.
