A July 2003 trip
to Mexico City by trixy
Quote: I spent four days in Mexico City altogether and found it hard work, tiring, and draining, but very, very interesting.
The great Aztec pyramids, they really are impressive.
The Frida Kahlo and Trotsky museums, they are close by each other, VERY interesting and relatively uncrowded (on a Tuesday).
Wandering around the streets, particularly around Cohucacan, and sitting in the city parks.
There are notices of warnings about the Green VW taxis. I had no trouble with them but didn't travel in them after dark. My advice is look for the driver's Taxi license and Photo inside the car.

Attraction | "Frida Kahlo museum and Trotsky Museum"
There is a museum containing images and information on Trotsky, but most interesting is his house, still in the exact way it was left. I found it quite uncomfortable, as the bullet holes in the wall are close enough to touch, and his study where he was assasinated still has his glasses on the desk. Very interesting.
The house of Frida Kahlo is amazing. As well as showing her works, you can walk around the house. It is bright, vibrant, and fascinating. It wasn't too crowded and opens at 10am.
