Greece in Mexico city

This city (Mexico) is so large (at least compared to Paris) that is seems that they couldn't find local names for all the streets.

Around where I stay streets are named after USA states : Wisconsin, Indiana, California, Pennsylvania, etc.
A little bit further USA city names are used : Boston, Denver, Detroit, Sacramento, etc.
In another area they used rivers' names : Rio Sena, Rio Po, Rio Rhin, Rio Tigris, etc.

This is a beautiful area where the streets are named after Greek gods (Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Hercules (should have been Heracles I guess), Hermes, ...).

Some houses :

And, of course, lot's of wires !
