Mexico City is a very big and densely populated city. You roam around the city at any time of the day, you will find lot of people and tourists all around you. Early morning is the only exception.
We had checked in our hotel just the last evening in the zona centro. Downtown is such a bustling market place with lot of street vendors, tourists and people around. This particular street in the photograph had an ocean of humanity around it. But look at it in the wee hours of morning before sunrise, it was completely deserted. Not a soul, not a vehicle. What a contrast! I wish i had the photo of evening as well to show you the contrast. Last evening, we had seen the famous Ballet Folklorico de Mexico in the downtown.
I am generally not an early riser but when it comes to travel, i am always game for it. This was one such occasion when we were traveling to Puebla Cholula in the morning for a day trip from Mexico City.
