I spent three days in Mexico City, two of them with a great friend of mine. She was one of my roommates when we were in Spain studying at IE Business School.
I was 100% purely a tourist in Mexico City. I wanted to see the capital, my friend was going to be there, and it was a convenient place to stop before heading down to Chiapas.
I have too many pictures so I’m trying out a new plug-in for the site. You can click on a picture to open it to full size. Once open you can click on close/next/previous or use the keyboard to go left/right or hit escape to close. It’s not perfect yet and the spacing can use some work, but I’ll get it right next time or stop using it! 🙂
Zocalo is the main square in Mexico City. It has the national palace, cathedral, and lots of other important buildings. There are tons of shops in the area and high-end retail. It was still decorated from the Independence Day festivities that occurred a few days earlier.
Mexico City is very beautiful and modern. Below are some pictures that attempt to capture this.
The food in Mexico is amazing. I better say that again. The food in Mexico is amazing!
Below are some of the things I ate. Admittedly, I’ve been on a tamale streak the past few days. I can’t get enough of them and I’ve already tried most of the fried dishes here.
Chapultepec Castle is one of the few castles in North America. It’s hard to get a picture of the castle itself, but below are some pictures from the park and castle area. Strangely, an Austrian once ruled Mexico from here!
