Class Cultural Trip to Tequila, Mexico

Tequila is the main export of Mexico. They use a different kind of pineapple (pina) to make it. Raw it tastes like a potato and has the same consistency. They cook it and then it is sweet but not chewable, you just use your teeth to pull out the sweet juice. Or they grind the cooked pina to extract the sweet juice for tequila. It was very interesting to see how they make it.
A beautiful Catholic cathedral. I love church architecture! The inside was incredible as well.
