        Great place to stay but staff let down the vibe!

        Great rooms, beautiful terrace with great view, but the staff weren't exactly the friendliest nor helpful. This may be due to inability to communicate in English - but hey... can't hurt to try and be helpful to travellers.

        After the big fiesta the night before, I got up on time for breakfast at 9am after just a few hours of sleep. Upon arriving in the big salon where the buffet was, I realized that I was the only man standing. Spontaneously I decided to head back to bed and set my alarm for another hour of sleep. That went well, but at 10 I was still the only one (more or less, maybe one of five people). So I was just chilling out until more people were awake, and then went on to ...

        This was again a short 2 nights stop. It was basically 2 days of walking everywhere in this small city. Lots of churches and other amazingly well done and well conservated buildings. The cute city with its colours and relief is perfect really! Icing on the ...

        We walked over to the square and found a cafe for lunch with Jose and Stacy. Once again lunch was larger than our appetites so we were able to take some food for the evening back in San Miguel. As we all got together we walked back to the parking area and saw another entrance to the underground of Guanajuato prior to our return trip. This is a city that would be worth a couple more days visit.

        As the girls in the group started heading home, Antonio pulled workers from the bar to walk them home. Chivalry is alive and well in Mexico! The best, though, was Amy. She kept refusing the offer and so about a minute after she started off, Antonio nodded to the guy who he'd asked to walk her home and he headed off behind Amy. It was the ...

        ... hasn't actually rained, which is bad. Apparently they're in a drought right now so we're all hoping for rain!

        We took a bus home and I got my first real glance at the famous tunnels of Guanajuato. The tunnels were made for mining, and I guess once the mining was finished, they turned them into tunnels for cars and pedestrians. Now, I was picturing a handful of tunnels that had one way in and one way out so I was quite surprised to see ...
