Guanajuato on 10 December 2012 at 10:42 a.m.
On that cloudy day, the day before I started my drive north, I rode over to the capital city with Michel and spent the day in Guanajuato walking around with him. I wanted to soak up some reserve of Mexico to last me while I am gone from it for a time. We spent the entire day exploring the alleys of Guanajuato, a city of alleys–callejones. Many have exotic names such as the Alley of Hearts and the Alley of Hell. Many are enchanting. Many are not. We were in some where we had no business being, alleys into which the King’s Writ does not extend.
I will do a little series here on these alleys, a strange choice of subjects. Many of the photos will be anything other than beautiful. This endeavor will have a limited appeal for my visitors, I know. But I am in a mood isolated out here in this old farmhouse cleaning it out. For some reason this fits my mood. Look at it this way. You can go into some places with me on this blog that you might not go into alone.
