one thing Yvonne insisted I see was the downtown post office, I thought oh yeah I really want to buy a stamp but I'll let you decide for yourself whether it was worthwhile

and the grand staircase, this building was built by the emporer Maxamillian when he was trying to build Paris in the New World

heres a scene youll see all over Mexico

theres hundreds of these human propelled taxis all over downtown Mexico City

outside the museum of anthropology these "Los Valadores" perform a centuries old ceremony
first songs and prayer

then preparing

and then flying upside down from a rope at their waist going round and round as they slowly descend
