Sense of what is important...

This city is known in Mexico as the most romantic city in Mexcio. They even have a famous kissing street, and everywhere you go you see couples holding hands and being all lovey dovey, which is great if you aren't in an anti-relationship stage which I was at the time...wnet there to get away from that crap! haha...made me less cynical, though...

Also, the most amazing thing was that many of the kids were very poor with no shoes carrying heavy bricks up hills to build houses, and they are still laughing and playing...was a very humbling experience, not to mention uplifting.

    You are so on target with the pork rinds (chicarrones)...they are HUGE! My mom LOVES chicarrones, so of course she had to buy one (about the size of a baby) to eat during our visit to Guanajuato state this week!....
