Reforma Avenue and The Chapultepec Castle

This is Reforma Avenue. I took these pictures when I went up the column of the Angel of Independence. Magnificent view. It was a shame that it was cloudy. Also you will notice a lot of people using their bikes. It’s Sunday, when the city closes all car access to this streets so families can go biking.

Far out what would seem the end of the avenue is the Castle of Chapultepec. Yes, a Castle. Here a battle took place around 1845. It was the Mexican-American War. Yep. We had our “share” too, but that is another story.

Below, I made a zoom to the Castle. To the right, is a Amusment Park, named Chapultepec. (very creative) You can see the Russian Mountain, the third largest in the world made of wood.
