Sharing some more pictures of Adrian's trip to Mexico. He is due back in just a few days. Soon all he will have is these pictures to look back on and a lot of work that is waiting here for him. I have never been to Mexico City, so I have loved these peeks at this amazing city that is so diverse and so full of people.
Maybe one day...
A vertical garden growing right on the walls of buildings! I wish he would have gotten a front shot but obviously he was not willing to get run over by the traffic. I would have gotten the shot.
More than 22 million people live in Mexico City, this is just 20 of them.
NonSolo Historic Center
The eclectic collection of buildings in Mexico is very diverse. I don't know if it was a foggy day or if that is smog in the air, but the buildings look so grimy to me.
From wiki: The Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary of Mexico City is one of the oldest and largest Roman Catholic cathedral in the Americas and seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico
I saw pictures of the inside of this church and it is beautiful. I don't know why he didn't go inside, but that is where I would have gone and take a ton of pics.
From wiki: The National Palace, (or Palacio Nacional in Spanish), is the seat of the federal executive in Mexico. It is located on Mexico City's main square, the Plaza de la Constitución (El Zócalo). This site has been a palace for the ruling class of Mexico since the Aztec empire, and much of the current palace's building materials are from the original one that belonged to Moctezuma II.
I know this is an iconic symbol in Mexico City but because I knew nothing of it,
I got some info from Wikipedia:
El Ángel was built to commemorate the centennial of the beginning of Mexico's War of Independence, celebrated in 1810. In later years it was made into a mausoleum for the most important heroes of that war. It is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Mexico City, and it has become a focal point for both celebration or protest. It bears a resemblance to the July Column in Paris and the Victory Column in Berlin.
I have some more pictures of art and sights that I will be posting soon. I hope you are enjoying Mexico with me. I really would love to go one day!
