Guanajuato

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!

Can you guess who at least one of these elves is? Journeymen, you should be rather familiar with them both! 😉

Last night, the students at the middle school where I help with English classes performed a few Christmas carols that I had been teaching them. They were so excited, and did a great job! They also really enjoyed the cookies I baked for them. They were pretty impressed that I had baked them myself (most people here just don’t bake. in fact, it’s much more common that an oven is used for storage than anything else here!). One girl said, “homemade cookies are kind of like a window to what it means to be American, right?” haha. Merry Christmas!
