Una bienvenida de Querétaro!

without comments

Hello everyone.

It’s been a long time, hasn’t it?  Well, blogs have gone out of fashion completely (mostly?) and now any old twit tweets.  I’ve decided to resurrect this for the nth time to document a bit my new life over the ocean in Mexico.

To be precise, I’ve moved over with work for six months to the company’s small office in Querétaro, a largish city to the north of Mexico City (DF in local parlance).  I’m not supposed to repeat how nice the city is (to keep it a “hidden gem”), but as it goes, it’s very clean, very friendly and very pleasant to amble around and look at.  I’m currently staying at a place called Queretaro Home B&B, which I have no hesitation in recommending.  (The owner is an extremely amiable former chef (i.e. delicious breakfasts) hailing from Canada, with an enormous wealth of information about the city and the country.)

Once I know the place a bit better, I’ll write a more in depth account.

I arrived just in time for Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), the festival celebrated pre-Christianity and now the two are fused to give the visitor here quite a spectacle.  Queretaro isn’t a place where the biggest celebrations are (I’m told the state of Michoacán is where it’s at) but I’ve still seen rather a lot going on.

Here are some photos to whet your appetites! More photos should follow on Flickr at some undefinde point in the near future.

This’ll do for a first post.
