 My outdoor office in the courtyard of the Casa Gonzales
 Modern Mexico City from the Turibus
 Lovely old Mexico City, ditto
 La Plaza de la Constitucion this morning - teachers on strike had camped out overnight
 I could not get through to the Palacio Nacional to see the Diego Rivera murals - and then heard it was closed in any case. Many, many police, hundreds of tents, chaos. School started yesterday.
 The French influence here - this sweet shop could be in Paris.
 There is lots of wonderful street sculpture here, including many benches. This is one.
 The Palacio Belles Artes has a baroque exterior but inside is magnificently deco, marble and brass.
 The elevator doors.
 A café. Can you see the type at the top right?
The exterior.
 Calendars on sale at a news stand on the street.
Along many streets are not just fruit and juice vendors but entire mini-kitchens. This is just outside the hotel.
