With thousands and thousands of others I spent the latter half of Saturday afternoon wandering around the bustling streets of Mexico City’s historic centre.
Walking down the pedestrian street of San Jeronimo, I came across a heavy metal band playing against the backdrop of a Catholic cathedral, an interesting juxtaposition. Below is a short video I shot.
Not long after, I joined the throng on Calle Madero, the busiest pedestrian street of the city. It runs from Eje Central, the city’s main thoroughfare to el zócalo or plaza de la constitución – the central square. Just before reaching eje central stands la casa de los azulejos (House of Tiles) on the right. Just behind it runs a narrow alleyway called Condesa. There I found another group playing, this time a jazz outfit.
Which do you prefer?
