My travels today to the Museo Soumaya gave me the opportunity as well to walk among the rich and probably not so famous. For the first time in all my trips to DF, I didn't feel as though I was in Mexico. Yikes! If you're homesick for southern California, Polanco is the place to hang out. If you take the metro to the Polanco station, you can have a very pleasant walk down Ave. Horacio. The pedestrian promenade is a great place to see people walking their dogs or jogging. Turn south at Parque América and head to Parque Lincoln. This spot is complete with a small farmers market on Saturdays and a playground kids won't want to leave. If you can get a copy of Lonely Planet's Mexico City:City Guide, it gives you a walking tour of the neighborhood (I find this guide indispensable when visiting DF). Before leaving Polanco, I found the Museo Sala de Publico David Siqueiros. Having just seen some outstanding Sequeiros paintings at the Soumaya Museum, I expected similar greatness here. Unfortunately, no! Several floor to ceiling abstract works are displayed, but nothing extraordinary. But, for only $12MEX, it was worth the stop. Many of the city's finest restaurants are found in Polanco, but Mexico's real charm is to be found in other neighborhoods such as San Angel. But, I can now say that I've seen a Starbucks with valet parking.
