In Solidarity

As a show of solidarity with the French people after the horrendous tragedy in Paris, a number of buildings and monuments in Mexico City are illuminated in red, white and blue, the colors of the French flag.

 An illuminated image of the French flag hangs where Avenida 20 de Noviembre flows into Mexico City's main plaza, the Zócalo.

    1. You're welcome, Gary. I wanted to post something concerning the tragedy, but didn't know what to write that hadn't already been said. So I opted for some pictures that I took while wandering around the city on Sunday night.

  2. That's really quite touching. Thanks for the post!
