Guanajuato Revisited: Ten More Photos

Over on the right on this page, you will see a list of the ten most visited entries in this blog through the years. In the number nine position is "Guanajuato: Ten Photos." I suspect it holds that position because so many of the people of Mexico have such a fondness for the city of Guanajuato no matter where they live. Yet, I have been ashamed of the quality of those original ten photos since shortly after putting them up. Many were just tourist crap, the likes of which can be seen anywhere. How disappointed many of the visitors there must have been! I have finally renovated some of them and replaced some of them with other photos. Whether or not that is ethical in this blogging business I care not. It had to be done. The ten photos to be found there now may not be works of art, but they are better than the original ten.

To atone for my past sin further, there follows ten more photos taken on visits to Guanajuato, the city of tunnels, the city of pastels, the city of affectionate young couples.

Street market.

I have forgotten the name of the street.

I never did determine what was going on here.

Cannot remember the name of this street either.

Yes, I know that is eleven. Dije diez más o menos.
