I hope there's more pictures to share.
Thanks for the comment

I too am really fascinated by Mexico City. There is a special energy there. Venturing outside the touristic zones is a must that's how one can get to know a city really well.

Of all the places you've mentioned I only visited Coyoacan. A week was not enough time to visit all these places..All the more reason to go back!

I´m glad also that you went beyond the touristic. People can be very kind even in poor areas and don´t mind pictures been taken if you ask them first.
Thank you very much! Mexico City is just an exciting place, I really love it there. I'm kind of obsessed with it

Always ask when taking a photo. I got scolded a few times for not doing so..

American tourists should be visiting Mexico City.. not Cancun, Acapulco, etc.

STUNNING. I've been looking at the city through Google Streetview and it's such an incredible place. Massive!

In my opinion, any visitor to Mexico City must go to Teotihuacan! It would be criminal not to, like going to Cairo and not visiting the pyramids of Giza.

On the road to Teotihuacan, I saw hills of shanty towns..

One of the highlights of the trip! I'm glad I had my sunglasses to hide my tears, this places sparked such an emotion in me. lol
