Downtown Zócalo - Mexico City

The Zócalo of Mexico City is the nation's political, cultural, financial, and religious center. The National Palace is on one side.  The National Cathedral is on another side.

My family went there before picking me up from the airport. We also drove by there a couple times in the next few days:

Andy & Kristen Weathers, Esther Weathers, Faith Nam

The National Cathedral at dusk

Some of the Christmas lights, Dec 31, 2001:

"Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año 2002 les desea la Ciudad de Mexico"
Translation: "A Merry Christmas and Prosperous Year 2002 the City of Mexico desires for you"

We drove by again later, on January 1, 2002

This is a rare scene. Usually the streets are much more crowded. But Jan 1 is a national holiday.
