Our Callejon

20 Jan

The callejon, or walk street, leading to our house is Callejon Griteria or “Scream Alley.” We thought you might like to walk the 110 steps past houses, shrines, a barber shop. a corner market and lots of homes to our door. First we will go down the callejon as we do every morning. Then we will return in the afternoon. A total of 220 steps down then up. Put on your walking shoes.005

You are at the bottom. Now there is a 15-minute walk to school. In the afternoon we make the return trip up the hill. You will see more people returning from work in the afternoon.

    It’s impressive that you chose to experience local life instead of the comforts of a hotel. How enriching your travels are!

        Actually we are pretty comfortable, well except for the stairs.

    It’s no wonder the ‘StairMaster’ wasn’t invented in Mexico. Their urban dwellers have no need of it.
