Thanks for your patience - while I completed my blog on Turkey.  I'm combining the first day and last two days of our visit to Mexico City into this one blog, because the first day was really just a transfer lay-over day to prepare for our flight to Cuba.

Mexico City never ceases to enthrall with its many good restaurants, historical sites, art works, and their museums.   I believe Mexico City has more police on their streets than anywhere else on this planet.   Police are everywhere; sometimes five-six in one group with several groups within blocks of each other.  Unfortunately, there are also many beggars on their main pedestrian streets, and there are uniformed men and women who ask for donations by sticking their hats in front of you.   They are as numerous as the police.   

There are many contradictions about their economy; many frequent their best restaurants and hotels - even in some seedier parts of town.   What is difficult to comprehend is why so many Mexicans come to the US illegally to find jobs, when there seems to be many jobs in their service industries.   The shops, restaurants, hotels, and other businesses seem to have a relatively good traffic and buyers.    

With that said, I'll post the pictures from my last visit to Mexico City for three nights.
