Travel Blogs from Guanajuato
We exchange students are presented with several opportunities to travel. That is due to a few holidays that fall on a Tuesday for example. Together with the fact that many of us have managed to shift our schedules to a 3-day-week, we get to travel often.
There are different possibilities of how to travel. Firstly, there is an organization …
... Teatro Juarez, a fabulous opera house claimed to be superior to the Palace of Fine Arts in Mexico City. That claim was not hard to believe. It truly was amazing.
As part of the tour organized by our Caravan, we had a wonderful lunch in a posh restaurant in the city center. After lunch we wandered through the narrow streets where there were shops of good quality ceramics and other Mexican crafts. We ended ...
... dinner. We were a tad skeptical about the place but decided to embrace the true Mexican feel of it. The food was delicious and cost about $6 each including a beer. Guanajuato was an incredible little town and being there for less than 24hrs probably wasn't enough but as I've said, we were dying for the beach! After a quick morning run and breakfast we headed back to the bus station (using our Spanish), to get a bus to Puebla, as a pitstop on our way to Puerto ...
... metres from our accomm is our local plaza - Plaza Mexiamora, when we have spent time before bed. The kids play a vigorous game of soccer around the fountain while the dogs escape the confines of their homes and run around, their watchful owners at their front door. We usually occupy a bench, sharing a bottle of wine watching the locals enjoy themselves.
On the bus to Querataro at the moment, desert landscapes replaced by miles of farming land.
... gravediggers found that all the minerals in Guanajuato's dirt preserve bodies extremely well, people came to look, the graveyard started charging and the city made a museum. Now some of these people have the honor of being naked before thousands of visitors for years and years. Unfortunately (fortunately?) photos weren't allowed inside, but I did see in the souveneir market outside that I could buy my own mummy statue for my living room.
