Guanajuato Mexico: College Town

What would college be without late night pizza and cheap beer? No McDonalds that I’ve seen, but Domino’s has a rather unique method of transporting gooey goodness to the students of UG.

  1. hey –
    I stumbled over here from Megan and Michael’s blogs, glad to see that you’re (sort of) following in their footsteps. Hopefully in a few months or years and a much larger bank account I’ll be headed that way myself. Anyways, I’ve been reading some of your entries and they’re damn good – this weekend I’m going to start at the beginning and hopefully get myself up to speed with where you are. I’m trying to start a travel site/blog for young travelers looking to do trekking, volunteering, off the beaten path type of stuff so I’m going to add your blog to the blogroll. Let me know if you ever want to write an entry, review a destination you’ve been to, or whatever – I’d really appreciate! Anyways, have fun and stay safe!

  2. Matt! Welcome, flattery and compliments will get you everywhere! I would love to learn more about your project and how I can be of service. I am going to check out your blog link! Wow. Thanks for the shout out on your blog. You seem to be a pretty driven and passionate person. I hope our paths cross and let’s touch base soon! I wish more young people your age had the opportunity to travel as you have (and will).

  3. Haha. I remember those Dominoes wheels. (What better way to get around that place? None. I remember describing those streets as “like a bowel of spaghetti that’s been dropped. Twice.” Your time in Guanajuato is totally taking me back to last year. I was using very similar terms….college town….youthful, exhuberant vibe….arts and music, etc. And so beautiful.

    Ok. I remember reading somewhere that you’re into botanical gardens? If you haven’t already, you need to go out to Ex-Hacienda San Gabriel de Barrera. It’s just a few kilos outside of the city center, easy local bus from Plaza de la Paz (I think…can’t remember the #). Not a botanical garden, per se, but muy hermosa y tranquilo. 14 or so different gardens–(Tuscan….Japanese…etc., etc.). Great place to chill on a nice day.

    Have fun!

  4. Travis! So good to have you pop up. I don’t ‘know’ you but wish you were here. Thanks for the recommendation. I am a zoo/aquarium/botanical garden nut so I will start my research now!

    Did you go to San Miguel de Allenda? If so what did you see/do and where did you stay?

  5. Hey Dia,

    No, I didn’t go to SMA. I skipped it on purpose. I was afraid it’d be too full of expats. Hear it’s nice though. I sent you an e-mail.
