Street Scenes of Mexico City

October 12, 2018

One year ago, in late September 2017, I went to Mexico City with two good friends. We went to explore the city and to see U2 live in concert. It was an amazing trip that I've shared about in two blog posts so far:

Doors of Mexico City

Bikes of Mexico City

I have at least 1-2 more Mexico City blog posts in me to share, so here is one of them: Street Scenes of Mexico City (images that don't fit into the Doors of Bikes categories).

I hope my images reveal how beautiful Mexico City is. I've included links to give more context where relevant. There is so much to explore about the long and fascinating history of Mexico.

All images shared were taken on a Fuji X100F that I rented from Vistek. I have added a comment or two on images, where relevant, but otherwise I've let these unfold without much commentary. I hope you enjoy them.

"Quiero que me den un abrazo bien fuerte..."

"I want you to give me a very strong hug..." (using my best Google translate skills!)

Gorgeous art murals are to be found throughout Mexico City.

The Leon Trotsky museum was one of our many stops during an extensive walkabout the city. A luche libre fighter (or imitator?) hugs a vendor in the wonderful Chapultepec Park.

People observing damage caused by an earthquake that took place several weeks before our visit.

The damage was contained to specific regions of the city, but where it did strike, the impact was quite significant.

"Revolution in the beds, in the houses and in the squares."

Adios Mexico City!
