Day 1797: Walking tour, Mexico city

Being saturday it should have been a good day to do some strolling. However, it was a day of marches and protests so all the businesses were shut down and groups swarmed the historical center. It was a hub of activity, but a little lackluster as all the museums and historic sites were also closed.

Mexico city is massive. It is humongous to the nth level. It however is laid out fairly well and with a good smattering of walking you can hit the highlights in a couple of days. Now, if you wanted to get a good grasp of the city and were of the inquiring mind (likes sites and museums), you could spend a month without doubling up on anything. Add to that the international flair in food as well as the mixture of all the latino cultures and european influences, it would take years to absorb it all.

For me it was just strolling around taking snapshots of things that I thought were interesting. If you were really into photography, it would be another one of those places you could get stuck for a while as everything ranges the extremes.

So in no particular order and to use up my memory space, here goes.

    Hey! you were around the Torre del Caballito, which is about a 15 minutes walk from where I live. I hate the marches, there is always one going on and it’s just my luck that since I live in a fairly centrical place I always get stuck in them. SME marches like this ones are worse, I think, since I never liked those guys anyways (I also live close to their headquarters and syndicate).

    Though you are lucky you didn’t get to see the 400 pueblos marches, in those you got to see throngs of naked people walking around blocking traffic. They set up camp in a park in my neighborhood so I had to walk past them daily for about half a year. :S
