A Photo Essay
Well we’ve finished part 1 of Judy and Michael’s Great Medical Adventure in Costa Rica and have happily moved onto Guanajuato, Mexico; beautiful, lively, friendly, colorful, and great food! We arrived the night of June 1, and we’re staying in area Barrio de la Griteria which is a 10 to 25 minute walk to most everything, well that would be heading down – coming up is a bit longer, but with locals running up and down the slopped stairs it inspires us to keep plodding along.
Since we’re still recovering from dental surgery we’ve only gone out exploring a few days in-between and in the rains (the rainy season has started here as well). The thing is once you begin to wander, the town takes over and pulls you from one historic sight though the colorful alleyways to open Jardin areas where everyone is just hanging out, visiting, eating ice cream, listening to Mariachi bands singing on the corners. As 6pm arrives the Centro fills with teens, families, and tourists for the evenings festivities and to indulge in one of the many great eateries, and as the colors change everything looks new and different….then of course out comes the camera again. No rush to get back we’ll just take a few more pictures before heading home to sit on our roof top Veranda and watch the sunlight replaced by the city lights.
As I’m writing this, in our little locals area, a neighbor has chosen to share some great Mexican music with all of us – no recording could be more perfect to enjoy the scent of rain filling our apartment with very light cool breezes.
