Here’s a great picture from the 1980s of Paseo de la Reforma, from the Facebook page “La Ciudad de Mexico en el Tiempo. It features a huge fountain that was replaced in 1992 by the “Diana” fountain that is there today. Here’s a photo I took in December, 2009.
When I heard on the news that a Mexican criminal is calling herself Diana the Huntress after the Greek goddess, I thought about how often I’ve seen statues of her in various Mexican cities. She seems to have captured the national imagination. This one is in the Zona Rosa in Mexico City.
They do like their “Dianas” in Mexico… Diana, the goddess of hunting. The seem to be everywhere, but this one is in the Zona Rosa in Mexico City on a quiet morning.
