Photo exposition: "Arena México: 80 Años de lucha continua"

Last weekend Edson and I visited the photo exposition "Arena México: 80 Años de lucha continua" ("México Arena: 80 Years of Continuous Fighting/Wrestling"), dedicated to Mexico's beloved sport, lucha libre.


The photos were displayed in the "open gallery"of Chapultepec Park (aka on the fence surrounding the park, along Paseo de la Reforma). The exhibit ran from September 9, 2013 - January 31, 2014.


Even the luchador "Blue Demon" made an appearance ;)

of the luchador "El Santo"
"Poke him in the eyes," "Pull his hair,"
"Throw him out of the ring,"
"In Mexico, lucha libre isn't a circus, it's a passion"
