Stories – April 2015

"News today and tomorrow a ruin, buried and resurrected every day, lived together in streets, plazas, buses, taxis, movie houses, bars, hotels, pigeon coops and catacombs, the enormous city that fits in a room three yards square, and endless as a galaxy."

- Octavio Paz on Mexico City, 1976

Mexico City was a city built on shallow lake beds. When it rains, it floods; history of a sinking city.
