photos – Mexico City

The reputation is a polluted, dangerous mega-city.

But I find Mexico City to be tourist friendly & easy to navigate via the third busiest subway system in the world. (Stay out of the cabs.)

Having seen most of the tourist attractions in the past, this time I wandered some of the major green spaces including the largest university.

I arrived in Mexico City on Jan. 5, 2006. To my surprise the holiday lights were still up in the main square.

Jan. 6th was “Three Kings Day”.

The most popular hostel looks over the central plaza, an ideal location.


Quirky. A most appropriate word for this city. Cow statues line the largest park.

A park spray foam battle.


University City, one of the largest in the world with over 260,000 students.


The signature building on campus is a library, entirely covered by mosaics by Juan O’Gorman.

Mexican art is not always good, but it is often BIG.
