Did a short day trip to Guanajuato yesterday, a 500 year old city. It was like being in Spain, only with brighter colors, graffiti, mariachis, and Mexican food! The taxi driver said they call San Miguel "Gringolandia"... but it's good and quiet for writing. In the main square (I think) an Australian woman gave me a flyer for an Indian restaurant, where I went to eat. I bought some sprouted bread from them. She said it had no sugar in it but I doubted it. Anyway it was better than anything else I've had lately. I wanted to ask her if it was a hari krishna restaurant but didn't have the nerve for some reason. Walking around I saw flyers for some language schools: the Escuela Mexicana and Learn Spanish Adelita...tempting. I didn't get any good pictures of the city, only of renditions of Don Quixote from the Museo Iconográfico del Quijote. It's delightful that one can take photos in Mexican museums.

I'm back in the biblioteca publica in San Miguel. Must buy something today. Am not into shopping, at all. After lunch...
I'll be in So. Cal. on Tuesday, home around the following Tuesday.
