Day 179 : Mexico City

My lovely host Simon has been kind enough to lend me his Canon Powershot while my Nikon sits patiently awaiting repair in a Mexico City Camera Shop. I'm ashamed to admit that I have become a bit of a camera snob. It was tought to take shots today without my niftly little Nikon, but I tried. Needless to say, these images don't do Mexico City justice (it's my fault, not the camera's). It's a pretty spectacular (and overwhelming) city so far. It reminds me a bit of Ho Chi Minh City, although not quite as intense adn chaotic, at least so far...
I thought this was an interesting little sunken public market space. The streets really come to life in Mexico City. Markets, Hawkers, and Performers fill the streets at more or less all times of the day.
What's going on in there?!? Similar to Lisbon and Porto, Portugal, I've stumbled across a number of abandoned and/or gutted buildings that are sprinkled throughout the city.
