I can finally say I have been to Mexico City. I was only there for three days, one of which was spent lounging around my cousin's workplace, but the other two were packed full of activities that only left me wanting more. I would have loved to stay there for a couple more weeks, but the experience was amazing nonetheless. The first pictures are from the Piramides de Teohtihuacán, also known as the Piramides del Sol y la Luna. There is also a photograph of the ruins of a palace near the pyramids, as well as a photo of a room that was rebuilt to look as it originally did. The original Basilica de Guadalupe has sank unevenly, so the front leans forward. The last pictures few pictures are of Carlos Slim's museum, which showcases his art collection in over five floors. The Oscar in the last picture was won by Sophia Loren, who had an entire exhibit of clothing, awards, and other such objects.
We went to the historic center on our second day. The first few pictures are of the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts), which is perhaps the most beautiful building I have ever seen. I also included a few pictures of the inside, where you can see that the entire building is made out of marble. Lastly, you can see from the side view the steps that had to be added as the building sank into the ground. The first picture in the third row is from the gorgeous inside of the Bank of Mexico. It does not do it justice.
The following pictures are what you would encounter walking around the center, though I remember it being a lot more busy than it looks. Finally, the last pictures were taken at the Castillo de Chapultepec (Chapultepec Castle). Although the building is beautiful, my favorite thing was the painting on the roof of the lobby, which shows one of the Niños Heroes, who jumped out of a building with the Mexican flag wrapped around his body to prevent its capture.
I would love to go back next summer for a longer period so as to actually get to experience what this amazing city has to offer.
