¡Postales de Nuestra Amiga #2!

Yesterday we took 3 normal touring days and stuffed them into 1 day. We started with breakfast in front of the Guadalajara Cathedral, then we took a rapid walking tour of the Historic Center's main attractions, including its many photo ops. Here's Chris posing as the famous Minerva statue...

Of course, one of these main attractions is La Michoacana, ice cream and agua fresca shop, always important for refreshments on a hot hot hot day!


Then it was off to Tlaquepaque, artisan center of western Mexico, where we ogled the public art and snapped lots of photos. Here's Elisabeth with Jack from The Nightmare Before Christmas, always a popular one in day-of-the-dead-loving Mexico...


Of course, Tlaquepaque is also a place for shopping. For Chris and I, it was our last visit to Tlaquepaque and thus our last chance to pick up a few items we'd been pining for since we arrived in Mexico. I finally bought my molcajete!! (And yes, it does have a sweet cabeza del puerco on it!) Click here for more on molcajetes...


By the end of the day, we were giving new meaning to the phrase "shop til you drop." We piled all of our many purchases onto Elisabeth for her to take home for us - here she is trying to carry everything!
