Break On Through

As part of Operation "Oh, Shit - UNESCO's Coming!," the city is offering free facelifts to the houses in the Centro. So for the past two days a crew of workers have been bashing our next door neighbor's house with sledgehammmers (the preferred tool around here, regardless of the task), and have uncovered a previously-unknown doorway on the side of the house. We're not sure if it leads to a mass grave or Moctezuma's gold, but since the neighbors have enormous German Shepard whose barking disturbs our already-too-neurotic little perro, we're going to see if we can't get INAH to spend the next couple years excavating the place, just in case.

Are they wielding those sledgehammers from the scaffolding?
And when are they going to do your house?? I'm sure the noise won't be too bad inside.

Do you even need to ask? Of course they're swinging sledgehammers on the scaffold!
