The Colonial part of the city has some magnificent buildings.
The Bank of Mexico is very impressive!
The Opera house magnificent
And all around we are reminded of the past.
this was a Monastery at one time!
We came across these Mayan dancers.
Marvelling at the national costume.
and the magnificent headdresses.
We wondered what birds had lost their lives to adorn these men.
The young learn the ancient rites.
There are some very nice shady parks
with interesting statutary.
and very good topiary.
Major streets are lined with flowers.
and squares have fountains.
Statues of the Mayans are there as well.
And the arch to Celebrate independence was a must to see.
Mexico is now turning into a modern city, very similar to other cities in the world!
Palm Sunday was our last day, memories are made of these last few pictures.
Returning to the UK for Easter we revelled in good weather and the English countryside at its best.
A visit to Cheynies house was a delight.
The bluebell woods, a reminder of our childhood!
Really big tulips
Our Granddaughter, Millie, waiting to win the egg and spoon race!
Really different tulips!
Lots of people all enjoying the sun
And a reminder that the English really know how to cross breed plants!!!
A gentle end to a busy, wonderful trip.
Our next trip in January 2012 will be to Ethiopia, so watch this space!
