Summer has come and gone. I returned to the United States for a family visit. We took a pass in September on witnessing the Fall Equinox, at the ruins of Dzibilchaltun, in anticipation of the Winter Solstice and The End Of The Mayan Calendar. We bid farewell to good friends who are now traveling throughout Latin America. El Senor and I traveled to Mexico City to celebrate "Dia de Muerto" (Day of the Dead or All Saints Day). Now, I find myself with much to share and the possibility of very little time, due to a calendar end or falling off a cliff, so here we go again!
Mexico City is amazing! Imagine New York City as a colonial city, overflowing with incredible old world architecture.Then add in monuments, fountains, mountains, volcanoes and pyramids. Boost the population up to 25 million and sprinkle in 5 million vehicles. That, is Mexico City! Our 10 day stay was not nearly enough time to take in all the wonder. The following are highlights from our guided walking tour.
