Quinta las Alondras was a great hotel--we wouldn't even have known it's 11 years old if we hadn't asked. Staff were very welcoming; even when we arrived at nearly 9pm, the porter and front desk clerk were very helpful. Our first impression of the hotel was that it had a really cool ambience, like an old castle as we walked toward the room. During the evening, motion lights would activate as we walked the corridor. The room also felt very castle-like--clean and spacious, a welcome sight after two long travel days. We found the wait staff in the restaurant to be very friendly and professional, patiently indulging every menu and cultural inquiry we directed their way. We ate many breakfasts and dinners there, very good food. Even in January/February, it was warm enough to sit beside the pool in the afternoons (though not swim). Many services, such as box lunches for excursions and laundry service, were available upon request at the concierge, just not visibly advertised around the facilities. Don't be afraid to ask! A few suggestions for the management--provide a bath mat in the room and drinking water in the gym. The hot tub at the gym was not filled and would have been a very nice amenity to use. Instructions for the wall heater unit in the room would be helpful, as we pulled them up online to figure out usage. The secure on-site parking was wonderful.

Our first day exploring Guanajuato, we drove our little Chevy Matiz rental car just to the fringes of the downtown area, then ditched it in favor of navigating the winding cobblestone streets on foot. Driving in Guanajuato can be a bit stressful until one is accustomed to it. Many streets are unmarked, and the system of traffic roundabouts and …

... know if that was planned, but I felt super bad about that L
Anyways… The mummies themselves are super strange. First of all, there are not many things that freak me out. But these mummies did… They are super creepy and scary and I found them really disturbing. That is also the reason why I will not upload any pictures of them to here. If you are daring enough, send me a quick email and I will send you a selection. Quick history lesson: For some reason a grave had to ...

... We'd go to an earlier mass and then eat out for breakfast. The first plan was to walk to a plaza about 15 minutes away and eat gorditas there, but as we were walking out of church Rebeca spotted the nuns selling tamales next to the entrance. We decided to eat tamales with atole instead. So, we bought them and sat down right there infront of the church and enjoyed breakfast.
We walked to the store afterwards to buy some groceries ...
