From Guanajuato to Guadalajara

On Monday we said “hasta luego” to Guanajuato where we spent two weeks falling in love with this quaint, beautiful little town and the wonderful people in it. One of those people that we wanted to take a moment to thank is our fantastic Airbnb host and new friend, Elias, for making our first stop on World Tour so memorable. On top of being such a fun-loving, artsy, and kind person, he introduced us to his friends, favorite spots, and the local grub including enchiladas mineras, menudo, mezcal and the milky slimy yummy beverage- pulque!

Elias also got us free tickets to the symphony!

Coming soon: video of our Mexican/American jam session! Stay tuned!

So, after a surprisingly comfortable 4 hour bus ride (more spacious and clean than most airlines), another 1 hour local bus ride (not as comfortable but only $1!), and a 10 block walk, we arrived in Guadalajara at the “mustache house”- a cute, artsy, home with 7 bedrooms, and 9 amazing individuals from around the world. It is not a hostel, but a large home owned by Moonie and Alex who mainly rent it out to college students and long-term tenants. We were lucky to get a room for a couple of nights and even enjoy a home-made authentic German meal courtesy of Sabina, one of the exchange student tenants. Here are some pics of the place!

We plan to stay in Guadalajara for one more night then head to Tequila where we will taste some…well you know. And then probably head back to Guadalajara for the weekend and then off to the coast. If you have any recommendations for us please give us a shout!
