Guanajuato cont.

More annotated pictures from this lovely town:

Callejon de Beso- the narrowest of narrow allies where there was a Romeo and Juliet type story- poor boy, rich girl banned to be together but would kiss on balconies that were so close to each other.


The balconies- they really are close together:


M with musicians-


A callejoneada- music group plays and walks in street and spectators follow.


They start the show in front of steps of theater..


and after the walk- they will end up in a bar.


The university




House of Diego Rivera- houses some of his works- too bad the shop was closed..


And the mummy museum- kinda creepy, kinda cool


There are lots of minerals in the ground so bodies are preserved with skin and everything..


View of city from the other side, on top of a mine.


Bye bye Guanajuato! Until next time, your colors will be missed.
