The week before Christmas, Laura and I traveled for a few days to Leon (where we spent a week this summer for mission meeting) and Guanajuato. We had a great time shopping, sightseeing, and hanging out with another missionary family, the Brungardts.
After shopping at the leather market (sorry, no pictures) we stopped at HEB. For those of you not familiar with HEB, it is a grocery store that is very popular in Texas. We were so excited to find many of the American things we can’t find here and for GREAT prices. Seriously, you have no idea the level of excitement. 🙂 We also enjoyed the fun shopping carts. Rachel especially enjoyed getting to “drive” around the store.
Guanjuato was a beautiful city. It is an old mining town and built into the sides of the mountains. All of the buildings are really close together and so cute!
We loved all the outdoor cafes!Isn’t it pretty?
I think we could have spent weeks wandering around the streets…
There are also all of these tunnels to drive through. It’s definitely a unique city. Very different from any other I’ve visited here.
Their market is so much smaller than the one here in Guadalajara!
