Mexico City Architecture






While looking for the taco stand photo I used in the last post, I came across a few photos I took years ago of doors and windows in Mexico City. I loved the grand architecture and enclosed courtyards, and took probably a whole roll of film just of buildings.

So to make this in accordance with the theme of the blog, I will discuss my culinary experiences in Mexico City. Basically I had altitude sickness for the first two days out of the four that I was there, and could only manage apple soda from Carls Jr. Not very adventurous. Fortunately, I eventually recovered and experienced the wonderful and famous Cafe Tacuba as well as some delicious mole sauce at a restaurant that had a rooster crowing from somewhere in the back the entire time we dined.
