México de Mil Colores: Tlaquepaque

Sunday afternoon we went to Tlaquepaque, a suburb of Guadalajara.  Our bus was having issues and needed to be fixed, so we (group of 40) took the public bus there. The weather was great most of the trip, but we got caught in a downpour on our way to Tlaquepaque. 

I liked Tlaquepaque -- quaint, with character and lots of little shops (though a bit touristy). 

Torta ahogada ("drowned sandwich")-- a standard in Guadalajara. 

I was going to have the bird pick my fortune -- until the woman
jacked up the price. Sorry birdies -- I don't need to know that bad.

The girls at El Parián -- plaza surrounded by bars/restaurants
and known for its mariachi

This is the first group that serenaded us -- before a group started playing
right next to them and we couldn't hear anything!

The second mariachi group of the night -- with lots more

From there we boarded the bus and made the journey back to Mexico City and back to reality!
