Whatta day. Esperanza started us off with breakfast at the Abasto market downtown Guadalajara, ran us over to the Hospicio Cabañas World Heritage Site then home to unload bags and bags of produce.
A quick bite and Bob and I were out the door again for the city tour and my much awaited for shopping trip to Tonalá.
