On the Streets of Mexico City
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.

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.
