A Weekend in la Ciudad de México – Introduction


I spent four full days in Mexico City, Thursday through Sunday, and I was leaving on Monday afternoon. Since this was my sixth or so time in my favourite city in the world, I didn’t really do much touristy stuff since I’ve already seen all of the important landmarks and museums, like the Angel, Anthropology Museum, etc.

This time my friend and I decided to spend a nice Sunday morning walking around the centre of the city. On Sundays they close down Paseo de la Reforma (one of the main streets), and you can actually ride a bike on the street and around Mexico City. We opted for breakfast at a local restaurant and later walked the streets of Mexico City.

We spent a majority of the time in the Zócalo admiring the beautiful architecture and buildings in the most important square of Mexico. We also walked past a few important landmarks such as the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Benito Juarez Monument.

Overall I had a pleasant short journey to Mexico as the main purpose was to visit friends and their families, but I’m also glad that we were able to go to my favourite part of the city and explore more.
