Dia de la Raza

The “Dia de la Raza” (in the USA “Columbus Day”) is celebrated the 12th Oct in Guadalajara and maybe also in other Mexican cities. Instead for celebrating that Columbus discovered a new part of the world, in Mexico it is celebrated, that the different races can live together. Usually there will be danced all the day and night, but unfortunately here in Guadalajara it was different this year. What happened? Follow the link to Jalisco and scroll down to the 12th Oct. There you can read about it.

You can also read about my tour to Chapala and the Lake of Chapala on this site. Just continue reading after 12th Oct.

By the way, the blog is just now really up-to-date including photos and links to more photos.

Enjoy and stay tuned!


To go by car and bus from Ciudad Valles, San Luis Potosi to the city Guanajuato in the state of Guanajuato (shortened GTO) took a whole day even I did not have long waiting times. The trip was worth it. Unfortunately I have so far only put in the text for my first day here, photos will be added soon. To read about GTO, you can follow the link for Guanajuato.

I also have updated my report about all of my destinations in the state of San Luis Potosi and added photos. Meanwhile you are waiting for the photos for GTO, you can read about the days before by following the link to SLP.

Enjoy and stay tuned, please!

San Luis Potosi

Since 23rd Sept I am in the state of San Luis Potosi. I started in the capital with the same name and have been to Real de Catorce, a former mining town as well. Today I was going further to Ciudad Valles, were I am sleeping in a hostel. Daytime I will finally see the Surrealistic garden in Xilitla and much more. I will make three day-trips and all should be possible by usual bus.

I could not upload photos tonight, because the quality of the Internet, but I hope, that I can upload them soon.

Enjoy as usual – and stay tuned, please!
