Once the trip around Central America was finished I went to Mexico City for a few days. Stayed very near the main square (the Zocalo).

These four days were spent wandering around the main city centre, especially the Zocalo and to the Coyoacán district. The Coyoacán district is a very picturesque area with lots of old houses and churches.
