Guanajuato Final Day

Final Day SMA, GTO

The final full day is here and we couldn’t be more grateful to be able to do this trip. We started off eating at our favorite restaurant called, Lavanda Restaurante. Eating molletes and drinking coffee from Chiapas and Veracruz, wishing so much we could bring this back with us. After our brunch we headed towards our Airbnb to prepare for the day when we ran into a long parade. The city of San Miguel was celebrating its annual el Desfile de los Locos. Kids, adults, grandparents all participated in dressing up as their favorite characters whether that was through television, movies or political figures. The mass crowd cheered and hollered as they marched to music all around the city until they ended at the cathedral in the center of the city.

Although the party continued until late at night we were trapped by masses until 3pm. No taxis, no mass transportation could get into the city, we are forced to take the day slower. Once we were able to leave we headed to El Mirador, a location dedicated where the view of the entire city from above can be seen. The coble streets paved its way up towards the mountain and the streets became narrower and narrower. Once atop, we stopped and gazed at the structure of the city, soaking in the sun and the beauty.

At last near the end of the day we made it to our favorite artisanal street, El Mercado, and we visited the artisans and their work. Connecting with more artisans and exchanging information for future sustainable relationships. We ended the week excited and hopeful for Tierra and it’s storefront always thanking Mexico for it’s beauty and its people who preserve its culture and history. Gracias a esta ciudad que merecidamente ha sido llamada como Patrimonio de la Humanidad.
