The week in pictures (July 31-August 7)

We've had a busy week, traveling around more than usual for interviews (in Guanajuato, Delores Hidalgo, and Textitlán). While I was working, my family took an opportunity to see the sights.

Guanajuato sits in a very narrow valley and climbs straight up very steep hills. This is an alley near the jardín.

The guys nap on a fountain in Textitlán's jardín.
The park's benches were wet after a hard rain.

Nopal fruit just before a storm. Taking this photo was my sister, Susuan's idea. The nopal bear fruit this time of year. I plan to sample one before this field trip ends.

Remember Bebe and her mother Jo? Here she poses with her "husband"
Pepe and my daughter. Bebe and Pepe had a "real" wedding, complete
with a reception with over one hundred guests (no kidding).

At SMA's Tuesday Market, there are a wide variety of vendors selling just about everything, including puppies and baby chicks. Here is a puppy and his ducky companion. The vendor explained that the duck and pup keep each other company.
