Early Morning in Mexico City

Morning in Mexico CityMexico 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.

  11. Cities have an eerie feel when they are deserted. Your photo portrays this.

    • I completely agree with you. And especially when you had seen so many people and vehicles just few hours back and now you have not a single soul to be seen. It was really eerie.

      Thanks for dropping by my post Irene. I really appreciate that. Have a nice weekend 🙂

    • Yes I think cities are meant to have people and noise and bustle – that is why I am glad I don’t live in a big city. When you have it like this you start questioning all your thoughts. I really enjoyed this early morning stroll.

    • I agree with you. Cities are meant to have fast pace life with crowd around. Staying in a smaller quiet place lets one live life at its own pace and lot of time for oneself. This deserted street in the morning looked as if time has paused for some time, as if this whole place which was divided among so many place few hours before, is all mine now.

      I glad you enjoyed this shot and we could share our thoughts and are having an interesting discussion. It evokes lot of thoughts 🙂

    • Helen, this is the photo I took last year when we were there. It was a ten day trip with my wife to Mexico. This shot was during one such morning when we got ready really early to catch bus for Puebla.

      When traveling, I always prefer early hours so that I have more time to explore the place 🙂 Thanks for the visit Helen.
