Museums and Sundays

An astonishing thing has happened to the Centro Historico of Mexico City! The whole area is usually full of street vendors, selling anything from tourist trinkets to pirate DVD’s in market stalls from underneath a virtual sub-city of red plastic sheeted market stalls. But this weekend – they are all gone. The mayor has decided to be rid of them, once and for all! I suspect once is a more operative word than all though.

So we had quite a pleasant stroll through a much cleaner and quieter Zocalo, and visited a couple of museums along the way. We kind of accidentally stumbled upon the Spanish Cultural museum, before trundling off to an old favourite – the San Ildenfonso.
