    This huge square is a stage for non-stop political demonstrations, people dancing Aztec dances, people just hanging out. This is the center of the city.

    Cathedral Metropolitana, Mexico City

    The beautiful and historic Cathedral Metropolitana borders one side of the Zocalo. This is the view we had of the Cathedral from our hotel window.

    Una ciudad se mide por la calidad de vida que le ofrece a su población y no todos vivimos en el centro histórico, es mas, con unas condiciones generales tan miserables es un insulto que se pretenda premiar a la corrupción, la falta de servicios públicos, la delincuencia, la falta de planeación urbana, etc... Es fácil ver el lado bueno de la moneda y olvidar la otra cara, la hipocrecía no cuesta nada.

    A mi punto de vista, que por cierto es muy critico, existen mejores fotografías de lo que es el centro histórico de la Ciudad de México, No por nada fue y es llamada aun la ciudad de los palacios, ademas de tantas cosas de mucho contenido tanto cultural, tradicional, y de gran simbolismo patrio. Creo que las fotografías que se pusieron no demuestran lo grandioso que es esta zona de la Capital de la Republica mexicana, Ojala pudieran mejorarse. y por su puesto que voto por el centro histórico de México DF.
