UNAM - Mexico City's largest university sits at the south edge of the metropolitan, a campus for upwards of 250,000 students. The University was built in five years, beginning in 1949, by leading artists and architects including Juan O'Gorman, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Carlos Lazo Barreiro. The campus features the 1968 Olympic Stadiums and a huge amount of open space. It was really pleasant to wander the grounds, to observe the students, and enjoy the beautiful weather. Whoops! I got a sunburn!
