A sinking beautyJanuary 7, 2017 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C
We spent a beautiful day in Mexico City. Filled with touristy stuff like the hop on-off bus, the anthropological museum, a bunch of city squares and cathedrals, and a less touristy evening, checking out a few bars in the Candesa neighborhood. Oh and we saw a huge protest in the streets of downtown :)
We're definitely enjoying our time here. One of the most obvious facts about mexico city - besides is insane size - is that it is sinking. 10 meters in the past 60 years!!! The reason is that it was been built on a dried lake bed, which cannot hold all the weight of this gigantic city. You see many older buildings leaning one way, streets are quite uneven in places, it's nothing I've ever seen before.
Oh and it's such a valuable time with my brother! Can't wait for more exploring tomorrow :)Read more
