Though their eyes - Mexico's Highland Part I

Hello there! We are back (have been, for couple of weeks, actually) from Spring Break in beautiful Mexico. As our other times there (as documented here and here) we had a blast. Lovely place to go and so close to us here in the US, there is really no excuse not to go. Here, without further ado, our pictures from our time in Michoacan and Jalisco.

Strolling the majestic plazas... So many...

Plaza de Guadalajara and Catedral de Guadalajara
Plaza de la Constitucion
Plaza de los Mariachis - This place was super fun




Visiting the Palacios de Gobierno and admiring the murals... My god... The murals by Orozco were stunning. It reminded me of the murals by Rivera in Mexico City (see pictures here)



Congreso de Guadalajara

Visiting utterly fascinating Instituto Cultutal de Cabanas... More murals by Orozco

Spending the afternoon souvenir shopping the gorgeous and totally pedestrian Tlaquepaque

Afternoon treats... Ice cream in interesting flavors like avocado, yum! Since we were in Tequila country I could not resist trying tequila ice cream... So refreshing

A game of Marco Polo in Tlaquepaque rotunda - Tlaquepaque's main square


Eating the food. Ah friends, need I say more? We always go for the street type... So much better.


Visisting grand haciendas and learning all about the cultivation of the Agave plant and the making of Tequila - Tequila trail, Jalisco










What did you think? Gorgeous, right? But wait, there are more pictures. Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende are coming up.

More travel adventures here on Instagram and see more of our kids favorites activities when visiting a new town here.

For more Mexico go here from pictures from our trip to Mexico City and here for our trip to Yucatan.
