Mexico City - Part V - The Museo

Saturday, before taking the night bus to Villahermosa, we spent the whole day at the Museo Nacional de Antropología; an impressive museum in a pretty neat building. We only made it through the lower floor.

The Museo in located in the Bosque de Chapultepec, the largest city park in the Western Hemisphere and which features the Art Deco Los Niños Héroes Monument at its entrance.

Near the Museo, one can borrow a bike for free.

And in our last hour in DF, we finally got a peak into La Enseñanza but only from the street. The church doors were open, but the gate was locked. Next time.

Splendid tour! Having followed you vicariously, sad it's coming to an end with what must be so much more to see. What will I do with myself each morning during "travel" time until you take off once again? Travel safely as you return. Think Costco!
