A Google search for the name of a small town outside the Distrito Federale (yeah actually that's what the D stands for) led me to the a series of fascinating aerial photos of Mexico City and Environs. The photographer is a helicopter pilot and from what I can gather his last name is Ruiz.
We have so many good memories from our two years in Mexico City - the people, the places and even the pollution. I have dined out for years on the story of the day the pollution was so bad that birds were falling out of the trees and dying. The next day El Nationale, the Government newspaper, baldly announced that the birds were dying, not from the polluton but due to .... poor diet and lack of exercise!!!!
As well as his photos of the DF Senor Ruiz has two slideshows (El Pais 1 & El Pais 2) which highlight the beauty that people who think of Mexico as being only Cancun and Acapulo miss.
