The City of Roses
As you know Guadalajara is nicknamed the Tapatian Pearl, the Pearl of the West but also the City of Roses. As far as I know this is because formerly you were able to find roses everywhere, but as the city grew up, it become impossible to maintain. Yesterday I saw this flower seller right in the middle of the street, and took a picture of the pot he keeps the flowers, and I wonder if GDL's roses had become now just for selling them.
Well at least there are still some flowers spread around. Of course we have huge parks and gardens, but there's a need of color on the streets.
