Strolling Downtown D.F.

Jeremy and I haven't been to the city's historical downtown since covering this summer's mega marches led by leftist presidential candidate Lopez Obrador. I think we got accustomed to seeing the area taken over by the tent city that was erected during the crazy presidential elections. We forgot what it was like to go downtown for fun.

So when our friends Brenden and Joy from New York came to visit this week, it was time to get reacquainted with downtown Mexico City. Here are some photos of Alameda Park, which is like the Central Park of Mexico. It's a popular hangout on Sundays for families and lovebirds. I also tried to get artistic by taking a photo of Joy walking past the Zocalo, but I wasn't quite successful. The Aztecs believed that the area near the Zocalo area was where the center of the universe was located.
