Yesterday I went with my co-workers to the bar Santo Diablo. They had a nice open patio with comfortable cabana chairs. We all ordered a few drinks to unwind from the week. Of course, I ordered my favorite michealada. 😀
Now what is the perfect pairing with a few drinks? FREE food. 🙂
The restaurant offered free appetizers like beans, sopes, popcorn and roasted pork tacos with homemade salsa. Delish!Here are a few of my lovely co-workers. Cheers to a great night out! 😀After sleeping in for a bit this morning, I left Querétaro for the town of Tequisquiapan.Tequisquiapan is the center of the wine and cheese producing region. I had a lovely ride there through the countryside filled with mountains, farms and the smell of manure. 🙂
I arrived in a rather quaint town filled with beautiful colonial architecture.
I walked around town for a while and shopped. This town has a very laid back and tranquil vibe. Many people are enjoying a coffee or wine at a restaurant in the square. They have a beautiful park filled with lush shrubbery and a calm river that runs through the back of town.
I ran into a few cowboys on horseback while I was there. They offer horseback riding tours through the canyons. I was not properly dressed today, but I plan to return on a Tuesday for a ride. Looking forward to it. 🙂
After all that walking, I became pretty hungry. I decided to try some of their famous cheese. This tastes similar to a smoked gouda. Yum!Now what is the perfect pairing with cheese? Fruit! 🙂
With the cheese, I decided to pick up some papaya at the market.When I first cut the papaya, I was pretty skeptical. It smelled awful. When I searched Google to explain what papaya smelled like, this is what I found:HAHAH! I plan to take the snacks with me tomorrow when I visit the hot springs with my friend Doris. Let’s hope the taste is much better than the smell!
After a few hours of shopping, I headed back to the bus terminal to wait for my ride home. What a gorgeous view!
So glad that I went to visit this town. Until next time. 🙂
