The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Salto del Agua



Don Antonio de Bucareli y Ursúa el 20 de marzo de 1779 siendo el nuevo virrey de la Nueva España, mandó construir e inaugurar una fuente en la cual terminaban los arcos de un acueducto por donde corría el tan necesitado líquido, que iba desde los manantiales del cerro del Chapulin (Chapultepec); este acueducto recorría lo que es actualmente la Avenida Chapultepec y Arcos de Belén.
Salto del Agua fountain, placed nearby in 1779 by Viceroy Don Antonio de Bucareli y Ursúa. This fountain is one of the remains of a large acueduct that existed in the colonial era and ran from Chapultepec Park to Salto del Agua. Today are some ruins about the acueduct in Avenida Chapultepec near Metro Sevilla. The fountain has a sculpture of three children riding dolphins. (Wiki)
