The city, Queretaro, is a very pretty city and is quite old. It is a large city, too with over 1 million people in it.
I didn't take a lot of pictures while there, but did take a few. The photo below is of the hillside above the city. We were driving back to work from lunch and passed by some areas that were yet to be developed. They had some rain the week before, so things were greener than normal as the area is typically very desert-like.
This is one of the areas in downtown Queretaro. The city has lots of little plazas where people can congregate and just relax.
I thought this fountain was cute with the dogs on it. I have no idea what it was for...but it looked cute.
One of the nights we went out to dinner was a local steak restaurant. They brought over this huge platter of pieces of meat that we could pick out. Since we were still full from lunch, we just ordered three of the steaks (the two bottom on the right, and the one on the left) and shared them.
Steaks all cooked.... yum!
And you can't go to Mexico without a few souvenirs. :c) I picked up some Don Julio (very good tequila) and mezcal, which is similar to tequila but distilled differently. It has a smoky taste to it and is a lot stronger than the tequila. I personally prefer the Don Julio... could drink that stuff all day. The mezcal.... I have to be in the right mood for it.
I also picked up a traditional doll that is specific only to Queretaro. I got this for my 6 (almost 7) year old niece. Its a cute doll and was pretty easy to find...even in the non-tourist areas.
I'll share some updated pictures of the garden soon.
