There was a large lake in the park with lots of ducks and we saw turtles sunning themselves.
There was a huge flag pole and we were told it is the third largest in Mexico. We were told that since it is a flag pole, it is automatically owned and cared for by the military.
We walked around the park and came back to the front reception building to ask what bus to catch from here and a friendly guy said he could answer all of our questions.
He took us to the bench in the shade and told us about the park and gave us some Mexican history and told us where to visit when we have time. He visited with us for about 30 minutes and showed us the binder indicating the days they raise the flag on their gigantic flag pole. He said they have two different flags they can fly. The first flag is about 34 meters long and too heavy for three people to get up so that flag is saved for very special occasions. The smaller flag is 14 meters long can be handled more easily and is used quite often.
He then gave us a ride down the street a ways to a spot where we could catch the right bus. He was a nice guy. We caught a standing room only bus until the school kids got off at their schools and then we sat until we came to Calle 2 where we got off the bus and checked on the collapsed sewer repair project on our walk home.
