Cruising in the single lane

Mexico City is not only vast population-wise, it’s just short of Melbourne in land area but with more traffic chaos. So visitors who love strolling around the sights rather than looking out a bus window either need to allocate a lengthy stay or choose their tourism targets carefully.  Our week in Mexico City hardly scratched the surface but those areas we did hot-foot it around yielded rich rewards. On the way from the studio shared by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo to the famed Blue House, Frida’s family home and now a museum commemorating her life and work, we walked through the elegant San Angel neighbourhood and past rows of classy homes with impressive gates behind which the wealth reside. Here’s a selection.

I grew up in western Queensland, worked as a newspaper and television journalist, public relations and public affairs officer and freelance correspondent in Australia, the UK, Japan and Saudi Arabia. I have three grown children and two grandchildren. I am retired, but work to keep the brain and body fit, and to stay marginally in touch in our ever-changing technological environment.
