I love all the pictures

the latin American tower, the pic from MUNAL , the immersive street scene in museum , the Juàrez street (strange place for a break!?)
The Palace of the Marqués del Apartado pictures
The endearing black squirrel

Dear Roberto, the paintings of the two women is very touching, they seems to be somehow fed up with life (or because they cannot move when getting painted!). The botanical garden has some marvelous cactuses. Thanks

Thank you so much, dear Friend!
The Telegraph Museum is very beautiful. I had not posted it before because the previous administration did not allow taking photos inside.
Fortunately, that changed.

Fortunately, all cultural, recreational and sports activities have returned to normal.

Thank you for your update - great as always!
This is one of my favourites:

The Museum of Telegraph is so beautiful!
And I always again enjoy your pics from the Botanical Garden.

The yellow flowers we can see at Paseo de la Reforma - in Austria they
are called "Studentenblumen" ("student's flowers") in daily speech.
In Mexico they are used as decoration at the Dias de los Muertos to welcome
the dead who are able to return to their beloved this one day in the year.
Is that right? Mexicos "Allerseelen / Allerheiligen" (so those days are called
in Austria) always fascinated me...
Thanks a lot, dear Silvia!
In Mexico, these flowers are called "Cempasúchitl" (from Nahuatl) and they are the symbol of the impermanence and fragility of life.
They have many uses in Day of the Dead celebrations (They are mainly used to adorn streets, graves and offerings).

Thank you very much, dear Christi.
They really do not look very happy.
It is amazing the variety of cactus that can be found in the botanical garden of Chapultepec.

Particularly fine people shots in this set, Roberto. My favourites are the two pics from Republic Square.

Thank you for explaining the meaning and use of these flowers, dear Roberto!
Nice Mexican name!

I just enjoyed your great update: The Palace of Fine Arts reveals it's whole
beauty from above, when we can also see the wonderful green ornaments
of the forecourt. And phantastic close-up of the cupola!

I like your pic from the Telegraph Museum, love the atmosphere inside museums...

Last pic: Oh yeah, keep on doing sports, people!
Body movement of any kind should get a mass phenomen in all cities.
