Travel day to Manzanillo, Mexico

Today we travelled by bus from Guadalajara to Manzanillo. Of course we had to go to our favourite coffee shop before we left.

At the bus station

Look at the leg room!

Outlet mall outside of Guadalajara

Dried lakebed

... and all of a sudden, this!

The port in Manzanillo

Our condo at Villas del Palmar in Manzanillo. We are spending the next month here with our good friends Ger & Colleen.

I might do a couple random blog posts while we are here in Manzanillo. After that we fly to Mexico City.

Guadalajara, day 6

We spent our last full day wandering around Guadalajara. Here are a few of the things we saw along the way.

Mixed in with stores and small restaurants, we find this ... a machine shop

Templo de Aranzazú, built between 1749 to 1752

Interesting story behind this statue.

Sculpture "the Motherland"

Ex Convento del Carmen, now used as an art gallery



Old style print shop

Had to have some more tacos!

Guadalajara, day 5

We walked past this culinary school.

This neo-Gothic church, constructed between 1897 and 1972, is so unlike all the other churches we've seen in Mexico. Inside you would almost think you were in France.

Museo de las Artes UDG

Cool building

Tortilla production


Colourful party supply store

We sampled tacos at a couple nighttime street stands.
