Photos of Mexico City: centre, December 2013
I took quite a lot of photos of the centre when we went to Mexico City the other day and so I thought they might be interesting to share with you all. Mexico City is enormous, it's vital, it's always busy, it has tons of people in it, it's always on the go, and it's always full and the traffic is awful. But it's fascinating, wonderful, colonial in places, busy, it is a way of life, there are waves of people crossing the streets and shopping, eating, watching, seeing, complaining.... It's life in Mexico City!
|Colonial buildings. The grey one was empty and abandoned to who knows what fate, |
but just look at the ironwork on the balconies....
|Suddenly, a green wall, a wall full of plants, right in the centre of the city. There are lots of green walls, when you start looking for them in the city. The plants giving off oxygen, and absorb the carbon emissions.|
|A taxi, of sorts. It's actually a bicycle and can fit a couple of people in it, as well as an awful lot of luggage. We saw one that deposited 2 people, hugely overweight, with a ton of baggage and boxes. |
The taxi driver/cyclist looked exhausted!
