El Tepeyac: Not Just a Restaurant

Next we went to the Tepeyac. Who knew this was a real place? I just thought it was a restaurant. Terrible Mexican... I really am serious. There is a huge Basilica here and Catholics come from all over the world to visit it. I don't really want to get into what I saw here, but when I asked my mom about it she looked at me like I should have known. Apparently it was common knowledge? I am talking about religious rituals-- nothing creepy, just something I had literally never seen anywhere else. I'm sorry, I am from South Central LA and went to Mexico once when I was like two years old. I never went to church either-- and by that I mean I'd go and play with my Tamagotchi the entire time.  Then, on the way home, I'd buy a soda with the dollar I was supposed to put in the donation hat. Anyway, the Tepeyac is the place where Juan Diego (allegedly) saw the Virgin of Guadalupe in 1531. This is why this is such a sacred site for many. Well, I didn't see anything wild like that-- but it was really nice to visit.
