Dave and Jan's travels:
Rivera Mural, the Palacio Nacional

Typically detailed Rivera mural. For a change, this one is not railing against the capitalist system, but instead against the iniquities of the Conquistadors. The ugly guy centre stage is Cortés: it's safe to say that Rivera is not one of his apologists.
