Guanajuato Travel Sightseeing Reviews & Photographs
Townscape, Parade, Street Food, Market..! etc
Guanajuato,, the city looks always beautiful on Google images. I wondered how look like thorough my eyes in real…
From San Miguell De Allende, I took a bus which shook passengers much.
After I arrived in Guanajuato, soon I headed to cheap dormitory style hostel with heavy many belongings under the strong Mexican hot sun light.
It looks the whole city is colorful with warm colors, such as yellow, orange, red, pink and so on. There were many people on the street with noise of chatting and Reggaeton music from speakers at each shops.
It heavy temporary rained when just I arrived at the hostel luckily. I took some rest with laying down on my bed, closed my eyes for a while with listening the sounds of raining…
After 30 minutes or so, suddenly the raining was finished, and the sun re-started to show me the city brightly. “good”, I left my belongings at the hostel, and I started to wonder the city with my cameras.
Some people have already started to play their music outside. The changed a lot weather is normal for the local people, I could imagine that easily.
They know raining is just temporary happen, there are not exist raining eternally.
Stairs and Jazz
There was a guy playing Jazz alone on a street. Whole street were “Mexican” or “Guanajuato” colors in the city, but only on the street the color was totally “Jazz”.
He made the street Jazz just by his music.
Music is great, Music is magic. I gave him some tips as my application.
There is a cafe on with the bridge. It’s famous for tourists, and popular for the seats on the bridge. Actually people often need to book for the seats. It should be nice to have a coffee on the bridge for a little break.
Guanajuato / Parade Cowboys & Girls with Horses
Mexican Horse Rider
Suddenly a fun parade passed me on a street for some reasons..!
With a lot of noise of festival many horses, horse riders and people who costumed of many kinds of traditional cloths and some characters walking passing by me.
I don’t know the reason why for the parade, they just were passing like for cerebrations. Men, women, boys, girls,, all of them were looked having very fun with smiling.
I was just looking at them, taking photos of them to capture the fun moment.
A Kid & Dad
At the parade, some of them gave people to ice candies, candies and snacks so on as free. It will be nice experiences to have them, but be careful for the risks. Some of the foods are not clean well and some people got stomachache..
I actually got ice candy, the taste was okay, but I got strong stomachache. (I didn’t know what I would need to go to hospital in next the place at the moment…haha)
Local Ethnic Huge Market / Mercado Hidalgo
After watching the horse parade, I stepped into the local huge market, it’s called “Mercado Hidalgo”. The market is yes actually very big one, and there are a lot of kinds of foods, things and cloths with ethnic uniq smell and atmosphere.
The entrance is very big, so is easy to find.
In the inside is very lovely for travelers. I really love any local market, because the color of the culture is clear, and can see the local people part of lives. The smell, sight, people and atmosphere, everything made me feel being in different world.
Always the butchers display their meats like that photos so far. There are no plastic packages and fridges. There are just piles of meats with meats smell some bugs.
It’s not clean as super markets’ meats, but I prefer the market style.
The reasons why are I can pay for the local people directly. I can see (easily imagine) how animals turn to be meats by the smells and appearances. I really did not care about the both, but step by step thorough my traveling my mind has changed.
Those restaurants made me hungry much, and I tried to eat some there. The cost is really cheap and much amount of taste good food.
People taking slow for anything, chatting and smiling. It looks they know how to have fun and joy in their lives even they are still poor.
