Definitely on the list for next Mexico City trip then, along with Diego Rivera's house.

The Rockefeller mishap was very interesting to read about - I had read it before and forgot about it.

I think DRs house was FKs house as well. Man and wife when he wasn't being a womanizing pig.

Rockefeller should have put his differences aside and saved this work of art.

And speaking of artists, your favorite songwriter, Bob Dylan won the Nobel Prize in literature yesterday.
