After my trip to Spain, I went to Mexico for two weeks. The exact location? The immensely beautiful city of Guanajuato. I also spent a day in San Miguel de Allende, and some random historical landmarks I found here and there.
I’m no photographer but here are some of the pictures that were taken of Guanajuato.
if only I could just live there…
One of the magical ways to enter the amazing city of Guanajuato is thru a freaking tunnel. Yep, that’s right, a tunnel. Tho I didn’t take any pictures of said tune I did take a picture of a tunnel… (see above)
I think it would be a crime if I wrote about Guanajuato without acknowledging their Mummies. So according to our guide in the museum of Las Momias; if a Guanajuato native is buried in a city cemetery and after five years no relatives claim the body than the body is dug up and put on display. These mummies are naturally preserved underground because of the dry soil. ( I could be wrong… so go look it up. 😛 )
So since we were already in the area, we decided to pay San Miguel de Allende a visit. One of the major differences between San Miguel and Guanajuato excluding their distinct geographical differences are its abundance of tourist. Guanajuato has its tourism on point, but San Miguel is so Americanized that even its restaurants lack that authentic Mexican feel.
Mexico was much fun. I’d like to explore more of it.
