Along the Boulevard

On Sunday Alejandro, his friend Darryl, and I walked along Mexico City's famous boulevard, the Paseo de la Reforma.

The median strip in the middle of the boulevard has been planted with thousands of marigolds.

Our reason for strolling along the Paseo was to see the displays of "Mexicráneos" and alebrijes.  I will get to those in upcoming posts.  Beyond those seasonal displays, there was plenty to experience along the boulevard... much of it pleasant, some of it distressing.

Being a Sunday, the Paseo de la Reforma was closed to automobile traffic, and for a few hours was the domain of bicyclists, roller skaters and skateboarders.
