Day 3 – Taxco : town of nothing but jewellery shops!!!!

Well this is another small but quaint town. The streets however are a nightmare to navigate… and there is no way, someone who is accustomed to regular roads would be able to drive here – of course seeing that I don’t drive right now is a great thing!

Upon arrival, we proceeded to the usual tour of a store, I lasted about 6.2837 mins in this store, since there was nothing I wanted to buy here, but we did get a little presentation of how the silver is mined and some drinks! Oh yes! The drinks, every store you go to, you can drink. Hell you could go window shopping in all of Mexico and get drunk I think. Since every store I went to I got drinks… and not like crappy shit tequila, but decent tequilas. This trip has definitely taught me that my principles of alcohol stand…you buy shit alcohol, you get sick… the good stuff is the good stuff for a reason! Don Julio and Herradura have become very good friends of mine, but only if they are Resposado or Extra Anejo!


The town square is nice and small… with everyone milling about. One can see that this is somewhere where the clock hits 7 and eveything closes up, however everyone is so friendly and willing to show you around.

The Church here which is the San Sebastien Cathedral. The church is decorated by Miguel Cabrera….. lovely it is!! Si!!!
