Downtown Mexico

One day I wandered downtown to the central square.  Weather was bad, so please forgive the picture quality.

Main Palace - Not very European-style, but much larger than would fit in the picture

The Opera House - very lovely

The main city church - color is off in this picture, as it was dark and cloudy; still, very interesting architecture

Gold wall inside the church

Very impressive back wall - all gold, huge - at least 40 feet tall

Church organ - note side in relation to people, plus big gate

Side of church, very ornate

Another interesting church

Yet another cool church in nice light

Men in hats on horses talking to kids - thought this was a very cool scene

Interesting (and huge) monument

Yes another monument

Average Mexican street - note VW Bugs

These green VW Bug taxis were everywhere; they really stand out
