Flag of Mexico  , Central Mexico and Gulf Coast,
Monday, July 16, 2012

Today was my first day without any real plan.  Woke up the latest of the trip at AM.  Around 11 I met up with Bryan and a new friend from the hostel, Lucas.  We headed out to the Merced Market.  It felt like the biggest market that I have ever been through.  Anything you can imagine was there.  We had fun viewing all sorts of different food and sampling some things too.

In the afternoon we headed over to Mexico City's zocalo.  I viewed Templo Mayor and visited the main cathedral.

Later in the day about 4:45PM, Bryan and I headed back to the zocalo.  This time we went to the top floor of the Gran Hotel.  From there were terrific views looking down at the zocalo.  We had some drinks and an excellent dinner.  At 6PM we had the best seats in the house to view the ceremony in which the military comes in and brings down the flag.
