5 of the weirder things to do while in Mexico City

La Isla de las Muñecas (Island of the Dolls) - Parque Ecológico De Xochimilc, Mexico City, Mexico

Don Julian Santana left his family and moved to this island in the Teshuila Lake 50 years ago. Legend said a young girl had drowned in the lake, so Santana dedicated his life to honouring her soul with a collection of dolls. It is now an eerie place to visit, with hundreds of dolls found in the rubbish near his home and hanging in the trees in an eerie tableau. Santana also decorated his cabin with dolls, wearing sunglasses, head dresses and other fashion. Chucky, anyone?
