Zócalo, Largest Square in the Americas

February 12, 2013

I am in Mexico City. I have come with my girlfriend Joy for a week in Mexico, beginning and ending in the capital city, including a few days in Cancún. We arrived Feb. 9 by plane from Atlanta, took the Metro into the city center, and found our hostel, the Hostel Catedral next to the Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City. The rooftop terrace at the Hostel Catedral faces the back of the cathedral and the Zócalo, the main square of Mexico City. The square is the second largest in the world, after Red Square and before Tian’anmen. It was filled with thousands of people for a concert and surrounded by riot police. Photos of the square are below.
