This is a wonderful composition, Roberto:



And the objects from the Popular Art Exhibition are simply delightful.

Your pics bring a smile of joy into my face, dear Roberto!
Love the vivid colours and all the art showing (phantasy) animals!
Day of the Dead is coming nearer - I'm looking forward to it!

You did a great job whit this thread , it really breaks the bad idea that the media has created about this city , by the way if you had the time you should go to Aragon park ( bosque de aragon ) the design weekend has created a serie of sculptures , too bad that the exhibition end the 31 of october , but if you can go just be careful with the sensitive trheads i found it a litlle killer , and if you cant go will be interesting that show us some day the sigth trhough your eyes of what its the second park of the city ( after chapultepec park this is the mos biggest )

Those two aspects are precisely what I like most about Mexico City; It is so green and so full of art.
I would be glad to see you here someday.

Good thing you like that particular photo, because La Diana is one of my favorite fountains in the city.
This exhibition of popular art is very interesting and includes art in cloth, glass, silver, mud, papier-mâché, etc.

Unfortunately, a storm fell during the Day of the Dead Parade and I had to leave without taking a single picture. There will be no photos of the parade.
On November 2 there will be another parade and I hope the weather will be nice that day.

I would have liked to go to the Bosque de Aragon; but you know that bad weather has not helped much these days in the city.

Dear Roberto, what a fabulous first pic!
Two of my favourites are the Cibele Fountain with the young girl dressed in pink,
and the shop window with the figure in red hig heels in the bathing tube.
Presidente Masaryk Avenue is such an elegant boulevard with much green.
And I love the vivid colours of the Mexican popular art.
Great update!

I wish you good weather for photographing at November 2!

Thanks dear Roberto for this reportage. I was this week in Sao Paulo and was surprised to see that they "imported" the Los Muertos parade (written in Spanish). Do they do the same in other South American cities?

It is very nice to walk through Masaryk; there are many shops, restaurants and cafes and the avenue has many trees and plants.

In certain sectors of the population, women usually celebrate their XV birthday with a special dress (like the one in the photo) and a big dinner-dance with all their family and friends,
where they dance a waltz. Currently, many girls prefer to party only with their friends in a bar.

This plate has an artisanal lacquered technique from the town of Olinalá in the state of Guerrero, which consists of waterproofing and artistic decoration of wooden objects
or vegetal bark of a local tree called lináloe.

It is me who thanks you for your visit and your kind comments, dear Christi!
Actually, I didn't know that Brazilians had "imported" the Day of the Dead parade; but I'm glad to know.
In fact, more and more cities in different parts of the world are celebrating these dates. This year, there was a Chinese Delegation in the Parade of the Dead in Mexico City.
As for the Central and South American cities, I think some have celebrations focused only on religious ceremonies. I'm not sure.

Comment ça tu es allé à Sao Paulo au lieu de venir me rendre visite à Mexico?
