Taxco, Guerrero

The Zócalo at night in Taxco, Guerrero

Hannah and I took a weekend trip to Taxco, a colonial silver town built into the hills about two hours southwest of Mexico City. As you can see, the central plaza (or zócalo) is pretty extraordinary, surrounded by four hundred year-old buildings and overlooked by a stone Jesus that looks like the candle atop an elaborate birthday cake. It was a beautiful Friday night, marred only by the fact that I spent the next eleven hours sicker than I have been in my entire life thanks to food poisoning from one of Taxco’s quaint little restaurants.
