Paeso de la Reforma.
Breakfast at a create your own enchilada restaurant nearby.
The Pillar of Light, the 2010 bicentannial monument.
Lion at the gate of Bosque De Chapultepec, yet I was stymied again by the Teacher protesters. I go there before 9am and checked the entrance route and went to have breakfast only to come back to find the park locked to keep out the teacher protesters.
So I decided to take a walk toward Parque Mexico, where my friend Joey's friend Grant has a book store. I'm continually impressed by how green and well-kept the parks and public plants are in Mexico City.
I got to the neighborhood near the store a bit early, so stopped at this comfy little organic cafe. It felt really cosmopolitan as a young busker with a great voice sang a song accompanied by an acoustic guitar. I also noticed the man sitting next to me was reading a Roberto Bolano book as well.
Organic brownie and a latte.
Grant's book store, Under The Volcano Books.
Here's me with Grant Cogswell, an intersting guy.(click the hypelink)
I took Grant's advice for a stroll down Alvaro Obergon before returning to the hotel.
