Inside & Out: Mexico City!

Seven days in this massive megalopolis was exhausting but truly one of the most thrilling and exciting places I've ever been!

Mexico City has a fascinating history as evidenced when walking through its streets. The architecture is stunning, the old core has some of the most beautiful buildings I've ever seen. A current book I'm reading states this city has more temples/churches/palaces than any other country in the Americas. I believe it! It seemed every street corner had an architecturally magnificent place of worship. History and art are everywhere here. I love how friendly the locals are, a rarity especially from big city folks.The food scene is to die for, sidewalks are literally jam packed with food vendors selling mostly Mexican street food and on a rare instance foreign food too (I ate from a sushi vendor). If there's just one thing I miss about Mexico City it would have to be the highly infectious energy of the place. Keep up or get stomped on!

Mexico's version of Champ Elysees, Paseo de la Reforma. Taken from Chapultepec Castle.

Templo Mayor. This is where the legendery city of Tenochitlan once stood. Being in this site is kind of like time travel. You're walking on one century and off in the near distance you can view the next, all while holding your camera you're reminded of what time period you are really in. The feeling I got here I cant explain..

Calle Luis Moya, Where my hotel was located. Its not the nicest street but it still had lots of charm with all the restuarants and cafes that filled the pavement and the friendliness of the locals that gathered there. Its those kinds of places, where you are sitting in a restuarant and a total stranger walks in and says "Good morning" aloud to everyone there and as he leaves says "Buen provecho." You just have to love the warmth of the Mexican people.

Mercado Jamaica

If ever in the city I strongly recommend this easy to get to flower market. Its HUGE and the vareity of flowers are incredible. I have never seen so many different types of exotic flowers in my life. Your nose will be very pleased as the scents here are aromatic. Its a nice escape from the smells of smog and pollution. Aside from flowers there is also a large area dedicated to food. Aisle after aisle you will find butcher shops, sea food vendors ( I saw one man selling baby sharks!) and an array of small, sitdown fastfood restuarants. It's definitely a place to please the senses!

Informal barbershop! These informal little establishments really surprised me! There were several of these, all over the city.
