Coyocán (place of the coyotes) is a lovely borough of Mexico City.
It reminds me of Capitol Hill in Seattle or Silver Lake in Los Angeles. It was the first capitol of New Spain from which Cortés directed the Spanish conquest of Mexico City. He maintained an hacienda there. This is the corner of Carrillo Puerto and Francisco Ortega.
Here’s the latest. During my last visit stateside in September I spent my usual 4 days visiting my daughter, Erica, in Los Angeles. I love my visits there. She lives in a nice apartment in Silver Lake. She has a very nice life there, well-connected with her neighbors, loved by all the baristas and wait staff in the many cool restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. The temperatures were shooting up above 90, so one day we, Erica, Tino the amazing dog, and I fled to the coast where it was 15 degrees cooler.
I started this one yesterday. This is a scene from near the city center down in the valley. The hills above will be crowded with colorful houses stacked up like leggos. This was shot my first day there after some light rain, providing nice contrast between the buildings and the road’s glare.
