Surreality Check

Went to Mexico City this past weekend to attend the Affordable Art Fair and spent Saturday walking the unbelievably crowded streets downtown. A surreal adventure...
Here are some pics:

On every street corner costumed characters from
superheroes to Homer Simpson, as well as these guys
will let you photograph them for a mere 10 pesos.
The wild dog puppet was truly frightening.
This building, typical of many others in Mexico City,
has obviously seen far better times.
Yes, it's Frida. In drag.
Outside the Sears building, of course.

A piece by Leonora Carrington in an outdoor
exhibit of her surreal animal scuptures.
