Querétaro, day 2
The Christmas season is still being celebrated here
We visited the Museo de Calendario (calender museum). The exhibits are housed in a restored 17th-century hacienda. This is one of the inner courtyards.
Interesting door knocker
We have seen wreath shaped cakes for sale around town. They are known as Rosca de Reyes (ring of the kings) and are traditionally eaten on January 6 during the celebration of Día de Reyes which commemorates the arrival of the three Magi.
We found a cafe that served the cake along with café con leche, which they poured with flare!

Plenty of squares with these well trimmed shade trees
Food stalls in a square
Shoeshine in a park
A Christmas "tree" covered with handwritten wishes.
This one hopes for peace, an iPhone and a laptop!
