When I was contemplating reading choices for my visit to Mexico, one fellow reader from the GR History Book Club recommended this book - and I am enormously glad I accepted the suggestion.
This book is really worth your time and effort if you really want to go in depth of the history of Hernan Cortes' conquest of the New World, because it depicts the fall of the Aztecs' Empire and the rise of the new power in the Mexico in extraordinary thrilling and non-biased way. With this work, I managed to explore and understand both of the collided cultures. What's even more important, I got the whole picture of this section of human history that completely changed the course of development of the mankind in the time.

Tazitazitazi Nisam se mogla skoncentrirat na ostatak nakon što sam pročitala da ideš u Meksiko. Sjajno! Obožavam putovanja, ali su sva na čekanju, jer trenutno s dečkom kupujem stan, pa nam treba svaka kuna. Napiši koju rečenicu o putovanju kad stigneš. Umirem od znatiželje.


Zeljka Evo me, došla sam doma :-) Bilo je savršeno, još ne mogu vjerovati koliko je zemlja čudesna - ne samo zbog kulturnih i povijesnih znamenitosti, da samo spomenem Teotihuacan i Chichen-Itzu, nego i zbog prirode, sve je bilo prelijepo, od kontinentalnog Meksika preko Pacifika i džungle do Kariba, pravi raj na zemlji, a ljudi su bili ljubazni i dragi gdje god smo bili. Zbilja, mogu govoriti samo u superlativima i preporučam posjet svakome :-)
