Murals by Diego Rivera, Palacio Nacional de Mexico

March 2015

One afternoon after finishing up work in Mexico City (a few years back), I dropped off my gear at the hotel, called an Uber car and hopped in and headed to the city center at the main plaza to check out some of the local history in the area.

I had heard and read a lot about all the things to see in and around Mexico City and was fascinated by the history to be found there that dated back hundreds of years.

While walking around the plaza that afternoon, I went inside the Palacio Nacional de Mexico where  I was fortunate to see the famous murals created by Diego Rivera.

These murals are rich in Mexico’s deep history and very fascinating to visit and view.
