Mexico Lindo y Querido!

The gloworm and I just got back from spending a whole week in Mexico. We were visiting my grandfather in Tareta. Tareta is a tiny village just north of Irapuato, Guanajuato. Guanajuato is a state just north of Mexico City. We spent the first four days day tripping to other cities. I'll post something every other day or so from our travels in the state of Guanajuato.

Here are a few pictures to get us going. As you'll notice, there was a ton of natural light. It was sunny, without a cloud in the sky, in the mid 90's. My bald head was sunburned the first day there. Heat was dry and it hadn't rained in weeks, or while we were there. There was a fine layer of dust on everything, however Mexico's beautiful colors were able to shine through.

A street in Guanajuato (the city).

A passageway through a museum in Irapuato.

Flowers in an alley in San Miguel de Allende.

A door pic for Talia!

Thanks for the door pic...I wish I could somewhere and see some different doors. Did you know that my husband spent a week there last July (the city)? He stayed with a family and participated in the Don Quioxte (sp?) immersion language class. His pictures are very much like yours. He spent the whole week in the city.

You better keep your promise of posting pics every other day or so.
