As I predicted things have been moving at snail pace and I’m loving it.
In the morning, the usual ritual ensues, coffee and reading, then the day really starts, some have been totally relaxed and others have been filled with visits to cool places.
This past two days have been the latter version.
First I had finally the chance to visit Templo Expiatorio del Santísimo Sacramento, this really cool neo-gothic church.
It’s building started on 1897 by the famous Italian architect Adamo Boari and wasn’t finish for another 75 years.
A rare style to be found in Mexico and an impressive building to visit.
From there we headed to one of our favorite spots in Guadalajara, Hospicio Cabañas, a cultural center which houses a series of impressive mural by the famous Mexican painter José Clemente Orozco.
I’ll let the murals do the talking.
More that impressive, these is a place you could sit for hours and take in every detail and still find yourself needing more time.
Also walking around the area in and around the Hospicio Cabañas you can find and all sort of cultural and historical things that baffle the mind.
On the second day we went to Lake Chapala, this massive body of water covers 420 square miles and is the largest fresh water lake in all of the country.
On the books front I’m pleased to inform that the first book, The Crystal Shard, in my reading plan for this vacations is under my belt and the second one is well underway.
Today I’ll take it easy, for tomorrow the magical town of Tequila awaits me, and I have a feeling that things are about to get blurry.
