David Lida takes us to Plaza Santo Domingo in the heart of The Big City that is sure to warm the hearts of the nostalgia and history buffs, as well as spark the curiosity in those who don't know this special plaza.

I'm glad you jogged my memory about D.L in D.F. Bye the bye, I note the subtle but real distinction between an escritor and an escribano who has an officially sanctioned role of legal standing. Is an escribano the same as a notario? The many varieties of Spanish one hears in Miami is peppered with the use of notario but in 32 years I've yet to hear anyone say escribano.

Last week,we visited the Secretaria de Educacíon Pública building, across Calle Brasil from Plaza Santo Domingo. The sprawling ex-convent has interesting architecture but most interesting, of all, many early Diego Rivera paintings.

In 32 years in Mexico, I have never heard anyone say escribano. (Having said that, I will no doubt hear it 6 times later today.)
