Today is Monday, February 3rd. I am sitting in our covered rooftop mirador, birds singing in the trees all around me, dappled sun coming through the slats in the bamboo roof and enjoying the slight breeze and near perfect temperature. Chris has gone for a run in the Chapultepec Park and I am writing. Not so bad - to write a blog in these conditions.
Last Friday, we were invited to have 'cocktails' in a house right in the city of Cuernavaca. The American couple, who were ...
... went on a Sunday, so many of the silver tiendas were closed, but our guide helped us scope out the best deals. Other highlights included touring the beautiful Catholic church with Spanish influence, followed by a rooftop lunch overlooking the pueblo. I got lots of great deals and discovered my skill of bargaining ...
... looked ahead through my side window and could see that the descent wasn't ending anytime soon. It had been about 15-20 minutes and I felt like we were on a plane going through heavy turbulence; my ears were starting to get really uncomfortable.
The scenic view though was another thing altogether, it was amazing. Forest covered mountains everywhere. I wouldn't be surprised if there were still some undiscovered ruins around here. Some undiscovered civilization.
... going on too and a real estate office we walked into with huge plans laid out for the mountaintop, but it looks like they were interrupted a few years ago - the diorama was pretty dusty! Outside there was this fake Mayan statue of the rain god, and we didn't want it to rain, so Shiela threw some candy we bought at it (chocolate-covered corn flakes called Kranky) and it landed right in the middle! So it didn't rain.
We went back down to have comida with Sr. Jaimes again and ...
... fireworks with just the bang and the core spark going off all around the city. On our last day there it was Cinco de Mayo, a holiday comemmorating the battle of Puebla against the French.
Topping it all off was divine weather. Taxco, IŽll be back.
Things I Learned
* I want to come back to Taxco and study Spanish
* Every shop and a half sells silver
* Why settle for less when you can eat somewhere with a view somewhere different every day.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Agua Escondida Taxco
Beautiful residence. Rooms are very small but clean and well decorated. A bit spooky walking around at night as there are alot of dead ends with no lights and it is a very old building. A little overpiced. Staff were lovely but we had a language barrier as they couldn't speak English and we can't speak Spanish.
