The dappled sunlight along the tree-lined Reforma was not ideal for photography, but here are some of the pictures which I took.

Dalí on the Reforma
When I went to the Anthropology Museum this week, I also wanted to see a special exhibit along the street in front of the museum. For an indefinite period of time, twenty sculptures by the famous, surrealist artist Salvador Dalí are on display along the Paseo de la Reforma. These sculptures are from the collection of Carlos Slim, the richest man in Mexico and one of the richest men in the world. Slim and the government of Mexico City made an agreement to display these works where all could appreciate them.
Of all of Dalí's bizarre images perhaps his trademark is the melting pocket watches which appeared in his famous painting "The Persistence of Memory". Those melting watches are featured in several of the sculptures on display.
