Mexico City’s Zocalo, Before the Rush

El Z√≥calo in Mexico City is the huge plaza in the historic center, also known as La Plaza de la Constituci√≥n. It’s normally bustling with pedestrians in the middle, cars on the perimeter, and protestors carrying placards about some injustice at least once a week. It’s also a staging center for concerts, events, commercials, and movies, so it’s a rare treat to find it completely empty. I was lucky enough to be there as the year’s Christmas tree was being removed (even though it was the third week of January.) So as I walked across on a Sunday morning to go catch a tour out of town, I was mostly just sharing the space with a clean-up crew. Later it would be bustling, but this was the quiet time. Here’s a quick 360-degree video tour.
