Mexico City, Part 2

We’re heading to the airport soon, and are very sad to go.

We spent the day yesterday in and around the Zocolo, the heart of the city.

We visited the National Palace (free) to admire Diego Rivera’s magnificent murals depicting the history of Mexico…

It was good to get back to Condesa, our green and tranquil neighborhood, after a day of sightseeing. Here’s our house; our apartment is on the 2nd floor on the left:

Here’s a typical scene from our window – filmed just now:

And from the window at night – there’s always a show going on:

¡Hasta la próxima vez, querido México!
