Adventures in Guadalajara, Mexico

As I mentioned in Friday’s post, my first international trip of the year took place over the weekend. For those who read the post, I mentioned that I would be announcing the destination upon my return. If you guessed Guadalajara, Mexico after seeing the picture of Jose Clemente Orozco’s “Hombre de Fuego,” you were correct!

Simply put, the trip to Guadalajara was fantastic — and long awaited, too, considering I’ve been aching to return to Mexico since my study abroad program in Guanajuato ended in 2009. The city of Guadalajara is beautiful, full of history and has delicious food (as you can guess). I was thrilled to be immersed in the Mexican culture once again, speaking Spanish at every waking moment. Although we were limited on time to spend in Guadalajara, we made the most of it. In addition to seeing the historic sights and museums in the city of Guadalajara, we made a visit to an outlying city called Tlaquepaque, which is known for its impressive ceramics and pottery pieces.

I’ve shared plenty of reviews of museums and restaurants, along with anecdotes from our other experiences in Guadalajara. Check out my Google+ album and the other blog posts:
