Guanajuato 1

We arrived at 10pm Wednesday 3 June and early the next morning I took some photos inside and from our house-for-a-week. In Mexico we are delighted to see how Mexicans combine improbable strong colours in the clothes and houses. In this house our hosts have combined an array of things from many countries, an array of mind-wonders, providing broad vistas of beauty and tiny corners of delight.

the day begins for the shop downstairs

The University of Guanajuato has a major architecture school.
This is the end of year.
Many students in the photocopying shops.

the children of modern slither past beauty with the
Hundred Fears of Solitude

entry to the Mercado Hidalgo
originally a dream of Profirio Diaz for a railway station

we bought the figs which were wonderful,
the little apricots which were perhaps wonderful last week
and an exotic-never been seen before Mamey,
like the one part-disrobed at the top back
The mamey is everything a mango ever could dream to be and more.

things for sale inside and outside the market
and home to our Casa Azul, having failed to visit the Casa Azul of Frida Kalho in Coyoacan
and up our magic stairs
