Sunset in Cajititlan
In the Metro Area of Guadalajara we have the Tlajomulco de Zuñiga County where you will find a lake named Cajitlan. This lake was part of the big lake of Chapala, before the increase on our population destroy it and make it a good place for aquatic races.
Thanks for your understanding on these days I wasn't posting, I am back.

The biggest Celebration
Probably the biggest religious celebration in Mexico, after Christmas, it is the day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Every december 12 almost all the country celebrates the day when Virgin Mary apears to a aztec indian, 16 century. This tale is in the deepest memory of the mexicans. Some say that tGuadalupe is the same as the old goddest Tonatzin. Anyway, the symbolical meaning is the birth of Mexico as a own nation, a mixture of Spanish conquerors and Indian cultures.
More than a religious symbol, it means Mexico.

This is "El Templo de Aranzazu", it was bigger but some parts were destroyed by the "Reforma War" in 1857, were the liberal and the conservaty party were fighting each other. At the end the liberal won, and the issues like to have an official religion - used to be Catholic -, changed, since then and now it does not matter what you believe or not believe.

La Alemana y la torta ahogada
As you can see, this is an old restaurant called "La Alemana" or the "German" in english. It seems like has nothing special but if we get deeper in its story we will find that one of the here was the born place of one of the most famous dishes from Guadalajara: La Torta Ahogada.
In a next post I will talk about this dish, but I can said chili is one of the main ingredient, and it is really hot.

Travel to the interior of a bus
If you are wondering how the mexicans travel to other cities, well, almost all is done by bus, and usually the interior looks like this, with a TV where the movies are really bad, butat the end the trip is kind of confortable.

Again and again
I don't know what is with me and window shopping, well in this case, I don't think I'd buy any of the items offered here. Or do you think of a good reason to buy a Pope Jean Paul II's reproduction. Do you??

Christmas at the... beach?
I just saw this palm at this pot looking so weird with nochebuenas at the bottom, that had to capture it for you.
How you call nochebuenas at your city??
Oh delicious and delirious shoping!!
I know that lately this has sadly became "Guadalajara weekly photo". I'm sorry this has happened, but hey... after a little (too long and not announced) break, here is another image of window shopping, but only that this is a police officer (well, in Jalisco, not in all Mexico cities, there are different kinds of police officers, this one is specifically in charge of traffic and car issues) looking at some fancy shoes... hey, if you had to wear those unglamourous shoes every day, won't you like to see some glam from time to time?
