Day 2 in Veracruz! It is completely lovely here and I could get used to looking at a snow-capped volcano every morning (until it started erupting of course). Jeff had his morning rehearsal and then we headed to the Museo de Antropología, which is a must-see in Xalapa. It’s a truly wonderful museum and it is huge!
After the museum, we grabbed a taxi to nearby Callejón del Diamante, a street famous for its shops. We had lunch at a very authentic Mexican restaurant and then walked around for a long while. The side street that our restaurant was on was very steep and was completely covered with street vendors, almost all of them selling beautiful jewelry and bags.
And in fact, I like Xalapa so much that I’m staying an extra night and will be returning to D.F. in the morning instead of tonight! Hopefully our kitties, Schubert and Nielsen (the former to be addressed as Ragebert for the next few days, as he will be very angry with me for leaving him alone), will be OK for a few more hours!
