A new political party held a rally in the zocolo. Buses came from all over the country and marched down the streets. Thousands packed to zocolo for speeches.
Our beautiful art deco hotel right on the zocolo. We are in the Vincente Riva Palacio room.
The best bakery on 5 de Mayo. We bought limon con coca. Coconut stuffed limes.
Taking directions to find la merced we walk and walk and finally ask the policia for directions. They tell us about the Jamaica merced 5 km away.

They told us to be careful. Of course, what could go wrong?
Hurache con chorizo and queso
And we took the metro back to the hotel. Quite a feat.
We arrived in Mexico City without incident at 6 am Saturday. Taxi to Gran Hotel de Ciudad at 7 am exhausted. But must wait until afternoon to check in. After breakfast at the hotel headed out to the zocolo in time for the daily
SeaTac… contemplating synergy while we wait for the flight…
