Guadalajara in Images

08Mar09

   Looking trough my old pictures, I rediscovered some nice images I took during a work trip to Guadalajara, Mexico, back in 2005. I have used a small P&S camera – Canon PowerShot A60 – that was really good at that time, especially in good daylight.

   Despite its bad reputation, especially in Europe (drugs, gangs, kidnappings, etc.), Mexico revealed itself as a colorful and nice place inhabited by very kind people. I’ll use this ocasion to express my gratitude to all the nice coleagues I meet there:  Laura, Omar, Karina, Ulises, Aristoteles, Victor, Carlos and others. Thank you, guys!

   I left Europe on a cold winter day (December 1st.) and, next day, I discovered Mexico on a wonderfull sunny day at 18 degrees Celsius. What a nice surprise!

  By staying for three weeks in Guadalajara, I had some time for wandering trough the city equiped with the small camera I carried with me. Enjoy the pictures and don’t ever hesitate to visit Guadalajara if you’ll have the opportunity!

    Nice picture collection 🙂 I’m glad you had the chance to visit some places in Guadalajara, unfortunately I couldn’t go out to take pictures with you :S because I had a surgery :S, anyway, next time you visit Mexico, maybe we can do a phototour.

      Thx Laura! Guadalajara is really a beautiful place and I’m very happy because I had the chance to visit it. I hope to visit Mexico again! I also miss those tasty tacos I’ve eat on Avenida Chapultepec. (Thank you Omar!) 🙂

        am inceput sa ma mai „plimb” pe site-ul tau.
        iar de saptamina viitoare ma apuc sa pun si eu la liber pozele din mexic, belize, guatemala si honduras.
        un 350d de la canon, fara multe „abtibilduri”.
        in gualajara n-am fost, mi-am ales un alt traseu.
        stadionul pe care am jucat in ’70 nu-l ai??

        p.s. vezi ca ai si-un mail de la mine

        • Nu am ajuns la stadion ca era departe de zona pe unde mi-am facut veacul. Sa ma anunti cand pui pozele. Imi place America de Sud !

  2. Hi Catalin

    Good pictures!

    Hope that you are doing OK and you can get back to Guadalajara again.

    What was the face of the friends when they saw the Tequila bottles with worms included?

      Thank you Pandinus! I like the movies on your blog too! When I was younger I was practicing Shotokan Karate for several years.
