End location: At the closest tourism taxi stand. Next to Chapultepec you will find Polanco, a fashionable area, with restaurants, hotels and elegant shops, you may like to have lunch or early dinner there. My suggestion is El Estoril restaurant; try the fried parsley and shrimp tacos or the snails au pernod bisque.

I said it all yesterday... Hector is the Pope/Movie Star/Imperium/and BFF forever of all guides. If you are traveling to Mexico City do not miss the wise, witty, and wonderful Hector. This is a one-man treasure of art, architecture, social and political personalities, data, folklore, history, and social razzle dazzle. Book Hector for a trip you will never forget.
