Mexico City, Mexico - 23rd November 2011

By: heynizajude

Hello hello mum! (:
Today we went around the city again and this were the adventures of the day:

At alameda central, a main street of the city, you can see the melia hotel on the left, the national lottery building on the right, the fountain and the monument to the mexican revolution on the back
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/lo21.jpg

We passed by the fountain of abundance that is outside of the national lottery building
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/lo22.jpgv

Since 20 of november is the anniversary of mexican revolution and this sunday it was extra special because it was the 100 anniversary of the ending of it we went to the monument to the mexican revolution!
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/lo23.jpg
We were supposed to go up but when we got there Niza realized she forgot her student card so we couldn't go up ): however she promissed friday we will!

Here's the street towards the square of the republic (where the monument is) you can see the mexican flags and palm trees! (:
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/lo24.jpg

This is the sculpture of "el caballito" or the little horse which is modern, the side view is better but since they're doing work on the street we couldn't stand there to take pictures
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/lo25.jpg

When we arrived home we found eine neue freundin tv! her name is Entchen
http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o223/niza_schit/en2.jpg
