we made it, we are in DF.
We hung out for a short bit in the room, then went to see the Monument de Independencia, then stroll down Paseo de la Reforma and then we wanted to stroll about in parque Chapultepec.
As we crossing from our hotel we started noticing lots of police, I mean LOTS of police, police in full riot gear, then we started seeing large police vehicles, then large water trucks, then we heard helicopters, then we started hearing loudspeaker voices, then we started noticing lots of red, red t-shirts, red banners,…
So it turns out that there was a demonstration, aka protest and march, condemning the government for not doing more to find the missing 43 students. I was having a very difficult time understanding the loud speaker voices.
We stopped and admired the sculpture of Diana as the Huntress and I read a little about her. Interesting that a 16 year old secretary was the model in 1942 for that sculpture.
We stopped at the IMSS hospital to admire the large sculptures out front, then went in to admire a large mural, that I was not allowed to take a foto of darn it, it was really awesome.
There was also a display of paintings by Carlos Clausell.
Back by the monumento de Independencia, then we found a korean restaurant. oh my, Korean food, Yum!
now back in the room working out our plan for tomorrow, so much to see, so little time.
