Mexico

About The Country

The capital of Mexico is Mexico City. It is high in the mountains. Mexico City is very old. People who lived there slowly changed its environment. Long ago Mexico City was on an island in a lake. Almost 700 years ago Aztec Indians settled on the lake. They built a city called Tenochtitlán. The Aztecs made many changes to the land and water around it. Then, almost 500 years ago people from Spain came to the area. They built a new city on the island. This became Mexico City. The Spanish wanted land, not water. They began to drain the lake. People used the land to build new and more bulidings.
