Guadalajara has been a real real nice surprise seeing as how I never planned on coming here.
I was just burnt out from all the heat this year and this place had the perfect temp. So I came here till the coast cooled down.
It has been an amazing place there are mostly Mexican tourists on the weekend. The rest of the time it is just a perfect place to see what Mexico and its people are really all about.
I am truly amazed at what a good feeling this city has. The families the children everywhere and big families at that all just enjoying life in every way.
The center historical part is where I am and 2 blocks from all the attractions. I am sure or at least I think the rest is probably a lot different. But where I am is more than I could ask for at the moment. I will be back for sure!!!
One other plus is they have plenty of public restrooms. It will cost you about 5 Pesos. The only problem is for someone who knows no Spanish it could be a little intimidating!
That being said I get along fine and it is easier to learn more Spanish for me because you have too! I’m loving it!!! It has been funny because I have people all the time ask me to speak English instead of Spanish so they can learn from me.
Kind of an interesting twist on things they help me I help them. It was strange today I met an American couple at the hotel and when I was done talking to them.
The girl at the desk here at the hotel asked me a question in Spanish. It was a very simple question and probably one of the first things I learned in Spanish. I drew a complete blank from my mind having switched back to English.
Later after my mind switched back to Spanish. The girl and I had a big laugh about it because she knew. I knew what she was saying and I just was totally a blank. LIFE’S GOOD!!! Dave
