We arrived in Guadalajara around 10pm on Friday. We went out with a group of about 20 to a nearby plaza for a laid-back dinner and stayed til around 1:30am.
Saturday we went to Tequila (see previous post) and got back to Guadalajara that evening. A friend and I met up with my Avelino-- a friend I met during study abroad in Argentina-- and his girlfriend and we went on an unofficial evening/nighttime tour of Guadalajara. Later that night we went out dancing with other people on the trip to celebrate our last evening (not on a bus!).
Sunday morning a few of us got up early to tour the city during the daytime, since we only had a few hours before leaving for Tlaquepaque (see previous post). Four of us took a horse-drawn carriage tour of the historic district and then did some more touring on foot.
Through Rotary, there was a large possibility that I could have studied at the University of Guadalajara. While I enjoyed the trip to Guadalajara and it has some great things to offer, I was not overly impressed. I'm glad to say I am happy with my decision to study at UNAM -- both for the school and location.
Below is a compilation of photos from the night and day time tours =)
