Soccer Games, Shopping, and Family

guadalajara-718.jpgAfter several weeks of traveling and moving, I finally spent this past weekend in Guadalajara. It felt nice to feel like I could finally discover a bit of my own city. I spent the Saturday walking through San Juan de Dios, located downtown Guadalajara. Although this was my third visit there, I was impressed by the volume of shoppers and families strolling along the streets, shopping, chatting, and eating. I walked through the market and enjoyed every scene. That Saturday was the first time that I made it through the entire market. The third floor amazed me the most. There were computer shops, video game stops, brand name shoes and clothing…..all imitation. Unfortunately, I can’t purchase any software products due to the fact that I will have problems at customs when I return. The following day, I went to Tiangis del Sol, an outdoor market that only happens every Sunday, with my friend.

This week, my boss left for Seattle for vacation. How small is this world? On Friday, she will be having dinner with my family.

I’m excited for what this weekend will bring. I am going to the Chivas soccer game (Chivas is the team here in Guadalajara) at the stadium. On Saturday, I will meet up with my friend for Morelia in San Miguel de Allende where we will spend the night and then take a bus to Guanajuato the next morning. I hear both cities are beautiful.
