One word on the "espectaculo de luces" happening every night on the Zocalo this past week: Wow. There is no other way to describe watching the Metropolitan Cathedral and the National Palace and the whole night sky above light up in the trippiest illuminations imaginable.
The "Yo Mexico" show is up on the plaza at 9 p.m. nightly until Nov. 23, in honor of the centennial of the Revolution. It's an off-the-charts huge production, with lights, audio, pyrotechnics, fireworks, and a whole chorus of live dancers. I'm wondering why more people haven't caught it.
Again, let me emphasize, it's trippy. And quite historically dubious in some parts. ... But that's a future post.
