Exploring my city.

When school ended I decided I really needed to take some time to explore Queretaro. Queretaro is the city I had come to call home for my five months in Mexico. I slept, ate, and attended school there. I lived there!

But I had not really explored it since very early January. Unless you count exploring all of the clubs over and over again.

So I set out with Helene, Tash, and Lucile to rediscover the beautiful city where we lived. First we set off to the market:

so much nail polish! (I’m a sucker for nail polish.)

gorditas for breakfast en el mercado!

yes, this is very much real and very much normal (but gross) in the market.

candies y chiles

luchalibre masks!!

It was really amazing to see our city through the eyes of a tourist. We got called out a lot for being foreign and taking so many pictures, but we wanted memories!! We had gone 5 months without taking touristy photos of the city so now was our opportunity.

The next day we met for a final taco date at our faaaaavorite place!

3 tacos de chorizo y una quesadilla sencilla. (three chorizo tacos and one cheese only quesadilla.)

final taco date. 😦

outside of the university where we studied!

And on my way home I decided to take some even more touristy shots!

for those of who you think Mexico is composed of only dirt roads. ;P

my house!


That Thursday night I went one last time to Barra Habana to salsa dance with Jutta (from Finland, who is now a sister to me).

Looking back at these photos gives me such nostalgia. Queretaro is such an incredible city and I really wish everyone had the opportunity to go see it.
