One of the eye-popping murals from UNAM, the National Autonomous University of Mexico. This is a tiled fresco on all four sides of the Central Library, done by Juan O’Gorman and depicting 400 years of Mexican history.

Below, the entrance to the Frida Kahlo Museum in Coyoacan, in the very blue house where she and Diego Rivera lived.

Below that, strollers in Park de Mexico, one of the city’s woodsy parks.
