Who remembers these?
2. Visit the nature sanctuary – warning not for the faint of fitness!! This one is a bit of a hike for some, so take your time to take in the view. ‘What?! No, I am not winded, I am just taking in the delicate caterpillars close up!!! Aren’t they so cute!!’

5. Go to the Liverpool and Altozano malls for dining, drinking, and shopping.
6. Are you an alitas fan? Alitas are chicken wings. Do you enjoy pizza? Have you ever thought to try French or Asian food? Well, there are restaurants throughout Morelia beyond the downtown where you can enjoy a bite of foreign foods such as these. Young Morelia loves foreign foods such as makis (cooked sushi rolls), alitas, and pizza.
7. Catch a movie with subtitles at Cinepolis. Available in both English and Spanish audio/subtitles. Check the movie listings.
