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

Torre Latino Americana / Latin America Tower


The Torre Latino Americana (literally, "Latin American Tower") is a building in downtown Mexico City, Mexico. Its central location, height (183 m or 597 ft; 45 stories), and history make it one of Mexico City's most important landmarks. It was also the city's tallest building from 1956, when it was built, until the 1984 completion of the Torre Ejecutiva Pemex, which is 22 m higher (although, if one subtracts the height of the TV antenna atop the Torre Latinoamericana, it was surpassed in 1972 by the 207m high Hotel de México, which was subsequently remodelled and turned into the World Trade Center Mexico).

I remember going up there on a wonderfully clear day in January 1980!

Hi Sally, thanks for stopping by, you're right, in December, January and February (cold months) the sky are so blue and clean, but in the past years the smog are increasing quite fast. Cheers.
