Yes, Mexico City, but....

I think it's the Metropolitan Cathedral in Constitution Square ("Zocalo"), but perhaps it is also known as "Our Lady of Guadalupe," I don't know (in which case the other poster would be the first correct answer).

You can see the Aztec dancers that are always in the square.

What is this?

What is it, and what are the two ways it's used?

No, Les, not a tool.

Cara, these things are about 7" high. Have you tried sitting on something that low? Quite difficult for most of us. Nevertheless you're on the right track with that guess.

To win, be more specific and name both uses of this item.

Hint: in a parts of the world, every man carries one around all day long, every day. You can find many photos of it on the web, both as shown here and in use.
