A Glimpse at the Sprawling DF: Mexico City


¨The police are whores¨.

Mm fresh orange juice. At this point, I realize my camera battery is dying. My only day in DF had to be scarcely photographed!

Great tapestry at the Museo de Artes Populares depicting everyday life.

Dedicado a Gonzalo Torné.

El Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes.

Sanborns department store and restaurant in the lovely Casa de los Azulejos. Note the waitress passing in ¨traditional¨attire.

Una limpia, cleansing, at the Zócalo.

Plummer? Mason, anyone?

A statue of the pope with the virgin´s face and a bunch of keys.

La Catedral Metropolitana= kind of depressing.

Mass baptisms and confirmations.

Coyacán, a more residential and hip part of the city. Anna calls it the Brooklyn of DF.

Photos Prohibited at La Casa Azul! Here´s a glimpse from afar at Frida´s bed.

Chillin in Frida´s backyard.

A bizarre play with a singing Frida.


Every stop has it´s own symbol. I thought they were cute, Anna informed me they were for the illiterate.

So. Many. People.
