Mexico City

Today I went on a walking tour of the Centro Historico district. The hostel is located opposite the Zocalo, which is formally known as the Plaza de la ConstituciĆ³n, it is the central town square of Mexico City. First stop was the Palacio Nacional where the walls are full of Diego Rivera murals. I would've taken photos but I couldn't work out how to turn my flash off (thanks Ed for sorting that out). Then we went to the Catedral Metropolitana. It's a huge church and like most churches of its time, it's full of elaborate scultures and lots of gold. I'm not really into churches because I don't like what they represent, but once I saw a bookshelf with graphic anti-choice pamphlets, I decided I'd had enough and left the group to do my own thing.
