Mexico city!

This week I spend four wonderful days in the worlds largest city... Mexico City. Everything people say about Mexico City is true... yes there is crime, yes the pollution can be terrible... but it is also one of the most exciting places on earth and if you keep you wits about yourself... chances are you are going to have a wonderful time. On this trip I decided to take it easy and stick around the Centro Historico area instead of venturing off to far in the direction of Polanco, Santa Fe or what ever.

Metropolitan Cathedral

Latin American Tower (Built in the 50s is one of Mexico cities first sky scrapers... most of the newer and more modern ones are now in the Santa Fe area).

National art gallery

Palacio de Bellas Artes

Some wonderful artwork painted on to scafolding on the side of the Palacio de Bellas Artes, the style reminds me a bit of some of the art found on the Berlin wall, just wonderful!

Hope you enjoyed the photos, check back soon for more! (next time photos of "El Templo Mayor" archaeological site.
