An interesting way to learn a bit about the country you are visiting is to look at the country’s currency. Only the famous (and sometimes infamous) make it on the coins and notes. Diego Rivera's mug can be found on the 500 peso note. That is equivalent to Ulysses S. Grant on the American $50. Needless to say, the man is a revered icon in Mexico and quite famous worldwide. I was not very familiar with Rivera, but the tour really showed me what a talent this artist had and why he is so loved in Mexico. The site of the museum is a nicely restored home with many original pieces from Rivera's life. Well worth a visit when touring GTO.
