Before heading out I was back at Lavasconia for Desayuno Tipico: Chilaquiles con Pollo y Frijoles Refrito (Chilaquiles with chicken and refried beans) 75 pesos ($5.35) per Pat Okell's recommendation. I thought I ordered the Verde (green chili), I had these in Tokyo and I can see they made them incorrectly in that the tortilla chips were still too crisp, these were much softer.
There was a little kerfuffle with my plans to take the metro to San Angel, all the metro station near my hotel were closed off due to the President's speech today. So I had to walk a bit further out of my way to find a station that was operating this morning. These are shots taken while on my way to Girabaldi metro station.

My first stop was the Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo Studio Museum. I'm pretty sure I was first visitor today. I know I was the only one there around 10 am. The red building was Rivera's studio and the blue Kahlo's.
In the studio.
Frida's blue studio, which had no access inside, but a film in Spanish in the foyer outside.
There's a third house on the property that belonged to the architect Juan O'Gorman who designed the houses.
I decided to walk to my next destination, the Leon Trotsky Museum in the neighborhood next door, Coyoacan, since it was so early and it hadn't rained. San Angel is a upscale area with plenty of luxury brand stores and expensive looking houses and more greenery than I had expected.
