Mexico City and the Zocalo

When we found out that DiploMom’s third tour was also going to be in Guadalajara, we decided that we needed to buy another car, so the days of being a one-car household would come to an end. We arranged to buy a car from an Australian diplomat that was departing Mexico City, so at the end of January, we flew over to pick up the car to drive back to Guadalajara.

We had one night in Mexico City, so after arriving on a Saturday morning, we crammed in a full day of sightseeing, starting in the historic center of the city, known as the Zocalo, home to the Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Palace and the Aztec ruins of the Templo Mayor.

Mundo Cuervo

Some friends had told us that the Jose Cuervo tour at Mundo Cuervo in Tequila was the most polished and well run of the various distillery tours that one can take.  So, when my parents were in for a visit in December, I decided this was the one to do. It was the best tour I have done so far.  A great tour guide and an extensive tasting really made for a great experience.

So, I may have fallen a bit behind on getting some photos posted, but I am hoping to make up for lost time.  Back in October, we went for a long weekend to Play del Carmen in the Yucatan. On one of the days we visited the Mayan ruins at Tulum. It was a hot and sweaty affair, hopping from shady area to shady area, but totally worth it.

Laguna Santa Maria Del Oro

This past weekend we enjoyed a quick overnight trip to Laguna Santa Maria del Oro. The crater lake is just a little over two hours from Guadalajara, cruising down the toll road.  The weather for a couple of days leading up to the trip and for several days afterwards had been unusually gray and wet for this time of year.  Hopefully a future return will yield some blue skies and sun.
