Back by Popular Demand

The Bosque Chapultepec in Mexico City continues to amaze me. This was our second time there, and we still haven't seen it all. This time we took my mother-in-law and a friend to tour the castle that is hidden inside the park. Apparently, it belonged to Austrian emperor Maximillian who was asked to come to Mexico by Mexican conservatives. His time there was up when Benito Juarez ran him out of his throne.

Check out some of the rooms that have been preserved in their original state. Looking down from the castle top, an incredible view of Mexico City can be seen. If there was just a little less smog, then maybe we would be able to see the volcanoes.
