Mexico City see + do

Mexico City looks like a billion bucks, thanks to a massive renovation project completed in 2003 that recobbled the streets and scrubbed the historic buildings around the Zócalo. This massive main square, dominated by the slowly sinking cathedral, has been the center of the city for hundreds of years. Half a block away, a row of colonial-era buildings has been torn down to reveal the remains of a stunning Aztec temple; if you slip past the vendors selling Disney knockoffs and performers dancing to New Age music, you'll see steps and carvings that date back to the 14th century.
