Taxco

We spent this Sunday out of the city, visiting the very cool silver mining town of Taxco, which lies about 2 and a half hours coach time to the south west, half way to Acapulco. The town is built into a large range of hills and is a heritage site that is better protected from damage by Mexican law than most Mexicans are.

It’s a nice place to go for some peace and quiet, a breath of fresh air, and a bit of sun. Assuming, as many residents of Mexico City wrongly do, that the city isn’t itself sunny! The main attraction is in it’s enormous quantity of silver shops, selling top quality, hand made items for very reasonable prices. We bought a few hundred dollars worth to sell to people we know back in the city and to ship some to Paola’s mum to sell in Milwaukee.

Other that that, it has largely been work, work, work!
