Traditionally you visit Mexico City for the Diego Rivera murals. I tried, but kept failing to find the Palacio Nacional open (it was fiestas patrias week). Instead I caught a few, more contemporary, artworks left over from Spring’s All City Canvas street art festival.
Dissent, it seemed to me, is a cornerstone of life in Mexico City — and for good reason. Although the presidential elections are several months past, there remains much agitation.
Another cornerstone of life in Mexico City ….
Vibrant colours (and music) everywhere is one of the many reasons I fell hard for this city.
From the moment I arrived until the moment I left fiestas patrias — for the dia de independencia — were in swing.

I HAVE to get my butt to Mexico City, asap. These photos are awesome.
Oh, you must! I adored every single tiny part of DF. And thank you!
Karen, I came here via my best friend Meghan and her blog The Soul Shines. In early August, I was captivated by the magic of Mexico City and I am so grateful to you for transporting me back there through these beautiful photographs… Keep writing, photographing, and helping us travel vicariously through you.
What a beautiful and generous comment! Thank you very much; I’m so happy to take you back to Mexico City.
