The day in photos

Thursday in photos: 

More murals at UNAM! They're everywhere! This is another one by Siquieros. We stopped back to ask a few questions, figure out how the University buses work, and meet with a student to view another potential apartment. 

Here's a view of the Jardin Central (the quad/commons) at UNAM. The main library is on the left, the Falcultad de Filosofia y Letras (Department of Philosophy and Letters) which cohosts my major is behind that, and the building to the far left is where my thesis mentor's office is located.

Wandering around Coyoacan on our way to the Centro we found a Rotary Monument! (I'm in Mexico as a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar -- more info in a future blog). 

"Dar de si antes de pensar en si" -- Service above Self, Rotary's motto. 

Very typical -- a picture/tribute to the Virgin Mary. 

Plaza Santa Catarina in Coyoacan. 

Went to Los Danzantes for dinner -- a Contemporary Mexican restaurant serving new versions of traditional dishes. 

As an appetizer we had taquitos with duck, cilantro, onion, avocado and a sauce. Yum! Followed with a salad and shrimp rolls and guava cheesecake. 

Restaurants along the park Jardin del Centenario in Coyoacan.

Parroquia de San Juan Bautista in Coyoacan. 

We stopped at Cafe el Jarocho -- a famous (and delicious!) cafe for some coffee
