Sorry for not keeping up with this, but I just have forgotten about it.  Anyways two weekend ago we went to a suburb of Guadalajara known as Tlaquepaque.  We went to their main square where there was a cathedral and like Guadalajara they had a entire street dedicated to pedestrians.  Here is where a lot of the shops were.  There was an area with a bunch of art.  The art ranged from all pweter to clay statues of mayan gods and pots to hand made dinnerware.  It was really fun to see all of the different artwork I definitly would have bought something, but money is not in surplus these days.  Along this street there were locals making these beaded bracelets, necklaces, earrings, rings, bead glued onto wooden animals (turtles, tigers, donkeys, etc.).  It was really fun to see.  Also along the street were a large number of restaurants..  One had a huge chair outside of it that was fun to sit on.  We came across a mariachi band playing for some tables dressed in native clothing.  All in all our trip was fun and successful especially when we got on the wrong bus to take us back home we ended up clear in norther Zapopan instead of at the south end, where we live. We took a taxi and loved the driver he was a fun guy to talk too.  Matt and him chatted about sports the entire way home. 

I would put pictures up, but the pictures we got were on the actual camara and not taken with the memory card and we don't have the attachments with us.  It was good times though.
