We arrived in Guanajuato yesterday afternoon after a luxurious bus ride.
Guanajuato is perched either side of a deep valley surrounded by tall dry hills.

The people who built this town were very clever as it tended to flood frequently so they built this underground system of pedestrian and vehicle tunnels that also drained water. I guess it is a antique subway.

Our hostel is halfway down one of these hills so there are many steps up and down.

Good exercise seeing Noemi and I have been tucking into the local delacacies.

Yesterday afternoon Noemi talked me into seeing the statue of Christ which is situated in the heart of Mexico- "It is only a 15 minute bus ride" Noemi said. After half an hour she asked another passenger when we were going to arrive. Well it took an hour but it was great- local folk, cacti, burros, and a dirt road. Nice bus though.

Well he isn´t as good looking as the Brazilian Christo and he is the fifth Christ to occupy that spot,
