Day Eight- the Zocolo


Today was a slow day after all we did yesterday in Teotitlan. We had a great
breakfast and then went off to the Zocalo for a few hours of people watching.
I brought my drawing supplies with me and did warm up my fingers making
a very simple drawing with my watercolor pencils.
The Zocolo is for everyone to sit, eat, chat or be still. It’s everyone’s backyard.

But first-a delicious breakfast!
The Zocolo Cathedral


Lots of balloon vendors

A few days ago this statue wore a blue mask...


Cool shady spaces

Private places for private conversations


Shaved ice with fruit juices...


Later that evening we walked by Santo Domingo just a few
blocks from our Bed and Breakfast

Interesting night shadows
