This is a common view of the streets of Paris. Well, it was before, not long ago. It was the last trip I made to… any place, so I hold these memories dearly and can’t wait to go back.
This is Mexico City downtown, as in not everything is what it looks like or something like that.
At this plaza, behind me, is the Museum MUNAL or National Museum of Art in Mexico City. (This link has information in English, which is not common so take a look a it and browseeee! I rarely do post from Mexico, I should though… )
Worth a visit if you ever come to this cosmopolitan place.
The museum is housed in a neoclassical building at No. 8 Tacuba, Col. Centro, Mexico City. It includes a large collection representing the history of Mexican art from the mid-sixteenth century to the mid 20th century. It is recognizable by Manuel Tolsá‘s large equestrian statue of Charles IV of Spain, who was the monarch just before Mexico gained its independence
I have no clue how this building got its nickname but one thing is certain, it does deserve it. Its official name is Torres Virreyes, and is a tall building, dorito-like, upside-down. If the building is not appealing (you may not like dorito’s) it does have a very nice food court in the basement, were you can access walking. You can be sited at one restaurant and order from the other restaurants at the same time.
Other than that, it’s just a modern building at a crowded city where we would prefer a nicer landscape.
It is located in México City by Bosque de Chapultepec, with 428 ft tall, 28 floors above ground and 16 below.
What if we had someone watching over us?
Life is not a random event. Life should be a nice experience, and the difference depends on the way some people learn.
There are some that learn through painful experiences, and there are some that learn through joy. How to see the difference?
You learn by pain when you complain about your life experiences. You learn by joy when you are thankful, and accept what comes to you.
Photo taken at the cemetery of Recoleta in Buenos Aires, Argentina. More about this place soon.
One of my many visits to Rio de Janeiro. I took this photo at the top of the hill where the Christ the Redeemer is. That is a height of about 2,329 ft (710 metres.) and the height of the statue is 125 ft (38 meters), so we were basically at the same height but standing on different places. Keep these numbers in mind because it took me quite a while to figure them out.
Gliders are common and tend to pass by above the tourists. I think this was one of those lucky shots.
I’ll be in love with you.
This monument is located at the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Rosario and Convent of Santo Domingo on Av Belgrano and Defensa street.
Although the Dominicans occupied the site of the current Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary and Santo Domingo Convent from 1606,1 it was not until 1751 that the current building designed by the Turin architect Antonio Masella began to be erected. On June 29, the cornerstone of the temple was laid, but the works did not advance steadily, due to disagreements between the designer and the order.2 It was not until 1762 that they were resumed with Don Juan de Lezica y Torrezuri as the main benefactor and probable director. of work until 1779.2 The church was consecrated on October 17, 1783, without being completed
