Men of the District:  District refers to the Federal District (Distrito Federal), the political entity of Mexico City. These are some of the gents that I have seen, met or encountered over the past year or so in México DF.

This is Julio, a vagrant troubadour.  My good friend Ro and I met Julio in Colonia Roma one night.  The night became a very long one, sharing stories and wine on Calle Bucareli.
