While in San Miguel we made a day trip to Guanajuato. It is the state capital of the region where my mother lives. It was a wealthy area at the turn of the century with silver mines. It is situated in a valley and the city is honeycombed by the ancient mines which are now the rapid streets to take to cross town.

Day of the Dead is special and different in Guanajuato. Students decorate the steps of the University. There is a Katrina parade that is the pride of the region.

Great museums, including the home of Diego Rivera, the mummy museum, the Opera, so many colorful homes, a funiculaire and a beautiful covered marketplace that reminded me of those you find in Paris.
