For AFAR Experiences, AFAR’s immersive travel event, we bring worldly, open-minded travelers to cities all over the world and provide access to people they would otherwise rarely get to meet. We’re in Mexico City for the next four days, and we’ll be writing daily updates pulled from social media posted by AFAR staff and attendees. You’ll see the incredible venues we’re spending time in and hear highlights from our lineup of experts on the arts, culture, politics, and design of this vibrant city. Follow the #AFARMexico hashtag on Twitter and Instagram for all of the excitement.
Tuesday was the last day of AFARMexico, and we made the most of it. Our morning started with a walk to Bosque de Chapultepec, to the Museum of Anthropology. We saw only a tiny part of this massive museum—many people vowed to come back for more on another trip. Art historian James Oles talked us through four pieces that have motifs central to Aztec (or Mexica) mythology.
