Travel: Historic Center

Ever since I first started grade school, History quickly became my favorite class and something I still love to study to this day. Architecture on the other hand is something that I don’t know much about, except for a few basics here and there. Nevertheless, when you combine both architecture and history and drop me right in the middle of it, in any city in the world, I’m in heaven. I love old ornate buildings that make me wonder what they would say about everything they have witnessed thru hundreds of years if they were able to talk. I’m just fascinated by historic districts anywhere.
The first really old historic district I ever visited was Mexico City’s Historic Center. I was probably around 13 years old and though I did love it at the time, I wasn’t old enough to really appreciate it. Then, as I got older I got to visit Paris, London, Rome, Milan, Madrid, Barcelona, and New York, and loved them all so much. However, it was after visiting all those places that I gained a new appreciation for Mexico City’s Historic Center and the whole city in all its beautiful glory. Its beauty is absolutely to par with any of the top cities in the world, and it makes me feel so proud.
Now, I fall in love with it deeper and deeper every time I visit. Today, I bring you some iphoneography from my last trip there. Hope you enjoy it!
