Around the Zócalo

Mexico city's Zócalo is one of the largest city squares in the world. We were there in December and they had all sorts of Christmas decorations, plastic igloos, a small tobogan run and even an ice rink set up (all this in about 20-25 degree weather). The skating rink was only open at night because of the slightly cooler temperatures.

The Templo Mayor , which belonged to the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. Mexico City was built on top of the Aztec site, so much of it remains buried beneath the colonial buildings and streets. This small portion has only been excavated over the last 60 years.
