Due to a little problem with my USBank debit card (ie not able to get cash) I was forced to not shop today, so here are a few photos of what to do in Mexico City when one can't shop for folk art....

Plan a trip to Taxco while eating bisquets con fresa and cafe con leche at Los Bisquéts de Obregón on Madero in the Centro Histórico

Mexico City

Walk to the amazing zocalo or giant plaza and then walk back along Madero--you can see the Torre de Latino America in the distance. Sunday mornings are very tranquilo in Mexico City.

Explore a newish "mall" in one of the historic buildings along the street named Isabel la Católica. Lots of very enticing restaurants, shops, delis and an amazing vertical garden below...

Can you see the bicycle?

Marvel at the age of the buildings of Mexico City. This is the exterior of the "mall" with the beautiful shops and restaurants and the vertical garden...

Enjoy the sunshine while watching Chilangos (Mexico City residents) exercise. Several major streets, including Juarez, shut down on Sunday morning to permit bikers and runners to use it and MANY people do...you can see the Torre Latino America in the background from the other direction...

Go to the beautiful Folk Art Museum on Independencia. Entrance to the Museo de Arte Popular is free on Sundays so I took a quick visit there before I took the Metro to the bus station...I arrived in Taxco about 3 hours later and I'll post more about that next!
