Jeff's visit: Zocalo and the Historic District

Monday we wandered around the Zocalo and the Historic District. (Once again I messed up on days -- most museums are closed on Mondays!) I've already posted photos previously of most of what we saw. However, we did a tour of the Catedral Metropolitana in the Zocalo, so I'll share a few of those photos.

The Zocalo, like much of the city, is sinking (since Mexico City is built on a drained lake).
They add/remove dirt to try to even out the buildings, but this measures the tilt of the floor.
