I am in Mexico City.
This time I am staying in a hotel that sits in front of the emblematic: El Angel.
I decided to get up very early and try to take a few pictures there.
El Angel, which of course translates to "the Angel"
and stands for Mexico's independence.
As I walked on the main avenue of Reforma I saw color.
|H&M black tuxedo jacket - Black trousers H&M - Melissa red shoes - Striped tank New York & Company|
Color that caught my attention ... they are "alebrijes" - I was told.
Alebrijes are are brightly colored Mexican folk art sculptures of fantastical creatures and they are being exhibited on Reforma.
There are dozens of them...
A-l-e-b-r-i-j-e-s ... i am still having a hard time saying the name!
