Monday 4th May 2015…..road trip!!!!

This morning Linda, Connie and myself with Jaime as our driver and tour guide drove us to the lovely city of Guanajuato…..I have been there before but not for a long time so it was nice to go back and it was also nice not to drive so I could check out the country side and the views……

If you Google the town GTO tells you a lot about the history and it is a city with 8 km of dark traffic allowed tunnels!!!

I did a walking tour of down town…this is a totally different town to San Miguel having a more European feel to it…it is also a big University town so perhaps more vibrant than our town…enjoy the walking tour!!!!

Great day Les! I love GTO and the young crowds in the centro. And you can almost hear the bells ringing the call to Revolution in Father Hidalgo's church.
