Guanajuato colors and walls

I was visiting my novia  in Queretaro, Mexico for two weeks around the Day of the Dead. We went to Guanajuato for the Cervantino Festival, a three week fest celebrating music and the arts.  Guanajuato is a pretty city in the central highlands  tucked into the side of a mountain. Most of  the town is 5 minutes from El Centro– straight up.  I was struck by the twisting narrow streets and the bright pastels of the buildings.

According to legend, the balconies across  Callejo del Beso  were so close that they  touched each other- so lovers could lean across the balconies and sneak a kiss without chaperones, of course.

Here are some more images of the walls and streets. I will post images of other sights in Guanajuato in my next post.
