This past summer while I was kicking back in Guanajuato, Mexico for a while, I put together a feature story for Global Traveler magazine. It was out in print form last month in the pretty version, but now you can find it online here: Quixotic and Quaint Guanajuato.
It’s hard to boil a place you’ve spent a month in down to 1,200 words or less, but I think it came out pretty well. Guanajuato is probably the coolest city nobody outside of Mexico has heard of, at least from the ones I’ve been to myself. So next summer I’m packing up my stuff and my family and moving there for a year.
“Huh?” is the response I usually get when I tell people that. But since you are reading this cheap travel blog, you probably understand. If not, visit the place yourself and then you’ll get it. Meanwhile, you can check out a video panorama of the city here or one of riding the funicular down from the lookout point.
