Palacio de Bellas Artes
The Fine Arts Palace is not hard to spot at all. It is a breath-taking building even during the daylight. But when we passed at night, with the red lights, was just even more jaw dropping. Eventually, it did not used to be illuminated before, but I think you will all agree with me that whoever brought the idea, did the right thing to attract more visitors. It is a great place to ponder over some famous paintings.
We took a train from nearest station -Anatole France.Its a best way to travel in city as they have wide network of trains & 2 min frequency with 6 lines.Tip-1If you are travelling by train it's better to take train pass for 20 euros.Tip2-Keep in mind to have city map always.Even though people are friendly there to help but sometimes language will be barrier.Tip3-Don't carry your passport always with you.Carry a digital or paper copy with visa with you.Keep it safe at hotel.Tip4-Learn some local words such as excuse me,thank you,way to, entry,exit..etc. this will help in travelling.You will thank me later for this.
Island of the Dead Dolls
This place is an uninhabited island in Xochimilco, Mexico. According to legend, a girl died in the canals surrounding the island, after which dolls began to wash ashore constantly. The island’s only inhabitant and caretaker then began to hang the dolls that would wash ashore in memory of the little girl.
This is the best place to start your day, its a super cozy café you can seat in a huge couch in front of Plaza Rio de Janeiro or drink your coffee in a french chair, its up to you, just read the newspaper or some book feeling the good vibration coming from the activities happening on the square. Lots of families with their kids and dogs, and people healthy running, bohemian neighbourhood, lots of trees and flowers and a beautiful fountain to make the place perfect for your morning! :D
This is an amazing pre-Colombian archaeological place that I had somehow missed on my journey, until I was pointed to it on my way someplace else. Tlatelolco was built by the Aztecs when one group of them built Templo Mayor (now in the center of Mexico City next to Zocalo main square) and the second group settled down and built Tlatelolco where it stands here. The main temple is said to be at least 700 years old which proves its construction by both Aztecs and Tlatelolca tribes. Tlatelolco stands in the middle of what it is called nowadays as Plaza de tres culturas – Square of the Three Cultures where three cultures of Mexican history blend. The three cultures being Pre-Colombian, Spanish and modern mestizo (represented by the former office buildings of foreign ministry in the southern part of the square)
