In Mexico City’s Bosque de Chapultepec you’ll find the Castillo de Chapultepec, home of many of Mexico’s governments, including the initial Revolutionary government, Emperor Maximilian, and most of the Governors-General. It’s a bizarre hodgepodge of various styles of architecture, with components obviously built by experienced military men with an eye for a defensive position, and components built imitating the styles of the grand French chateaux. The Castillo has a great view of the whole city and is definitely where I’ll make my home, when I’m king.

This last photo is actually of a house near the Bosque. I’m not sure why I put it in this set but here it is! (I guess it doesn’t fit anywhere else…)
