I come out of the Presidential Palace and then am faced with this rather extraordinary building
I dont think I will be inviting any of these ladies out for a date, that’s for sure.
A hacienda on the left…nice bright colours
There’s the cathedral
I move down the side of this red haunted building.
They are all bending all over the place, building on a lake? not a good idea.
More dead people…what on earth is this? Some kind of a university?
heh, it is.
Moving down…its extraordinary how these churches are leaning off the vertical
I move on, hello? An Egyptian mummy?
Its an Egyptian Exhibition!
And next door is a were wolf! wearing jeans!
scratches head…what’s going on?
Ok, so I cannot get into the Templo Majora from here, walking back
I reach the square and there’s the side chapel of the Cathedral
On the side is a model of how the old Aztec capital looked…fascinating
With some little lakes on the side
And there’s the Templo Majora, where I am heading..
The back end of the cathedral
With some lovely detailing on the windows
I think the tops have been restored.
Looking at the central cupola of the cathedral…the grey stone makes it a bit weatherbeaten
the buildings are gorgeous..
And then I see a book store…lovely, but all modern books and in Spanish
Some dancers preparing for their show….dont have time…otherwise I would have loved to wait and see this.
More views of the old Spanish architecture..
Closeup of the doors to the cathedral
Looking back at the Zocalo..with the Presidential Palace on the left and those lovely rickshaws in green…lovely design..But enough already, I head into the Templo Majora.
