The Coyoacan neighborhood is well known for Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul—totally worth the trip—but poor Leon Trotsky doesn't seem to get much attention. He was murdered here, an ice pick to the head, and his heavily fortified house is fascinating to walk through. Here he tended to his rabbits and chickens, he wrote extensively, and he watched as Stalin exiled or murdered his family, friends, and acquaintances one by one.
