Good people watching - while you go deaf on honking horns - and admire the monuments and art along the way.

One of the best Avenues in the world... It's really breathtaking...
Always something interesting is going on, art exhibitions or shows. The avenue has plenty of trees and statues alongside the length of it, do yourself a favor worth’s walking and to see everything around.

This is a great street that runs all the way from the centro historico of town west to Chapultepec Park and beyond. There are ten lanes in all with two lanes, a boulevard, three more lanes, another boulevard, three more lanes and another boulevard, and two more lanes so five lanes going in each direction. Many significant buildings are along side this avenue including hotels, banks, and more. It is filled with traffic and usually quite crowded.
However, go there Sunday morning and early afternoon and the inner six lanes are closed to vehicles and then it is filled with pedestrians, people walking their dogs, bikes, people on roller blades, some advertising schtick, and even some people leading group exercise. Go on Sunday and have a blast. We loved it. The long row of public toilets are there but only use them in an emergency. Most are pretty nasty.

I love this walk. My wife can no longer take it with me as her knees and legs and general health have given out. But, I took the walk last week while she was taking a siesta. We first walked Reforma over 40 years ago. Each step I took on my visit last week - 11/09/12 - reminded me of our walks back in 1970's when we were young and only rode the subway and buses and, of course, walked. It's safe and when you're tired you can catch a taxi to anyplace you wish to go for less than 40 pesos.

You see this statue everywhere in advertisements, so I had to see it with my own eyes. This is the more expensive area of the city where the Four Seasons and the St Regis hotels are located. Getting close to the statue can be a challenge as trying to cross in the heavy traffic that surrounds the monument can be tricky.
