We arrived in Guanajuto Feb 9 after a long journey through Zacatecas. Feb 10 we took a city tour. This is the only state with drinkable water and the capitol of the state. Known for the students with over 30,000 at university. Originaly built in the 1500.s after the river flooding and buildings sinking new buildings were built over top. With long tunnels joining the city. Visited Lahacienda San Gabriel de Barrera. This was the rich Spanish homestead built in the 1500.s. This area was the first to have piped plumbing. Visited the theatre Tijaiez Theoto built in 1876 by the Europeons. Beautiful and huge laced with gold. Had lunch at the hotel, visited many churches and went to the market place. Tonight we went back to town and were treated to a music festival.

February 11 visited the city of Leon known for leather manufacturing. This city is populated with over 5 million.
