Sinking DF

Mexico City is noticeably sinking wherever you look, but it's most noticeable in the old, heavy churches.  And they don't always sink nearly.  The old Basilica in the second photos leans toward one corner (and you go uphill inside the church).  The two photos at the end show a church whose foundation had to be dug out- at least eight feet's worth of dirt.  And they're keeping track of the tilt inside the church.
