We had a great time though and spent several days with some good friends from the U.S. who live in Patzcuaro as well as going places and enjoying the town and surrounding area with friends from Mexico City who now live there. It's a beautiful colonial town with a large plaza that is one of the largest in all of Mexico. These pictures are the best I could do.
We went to a pyramid site one day last week that dates back to around 900 A.D. What is left is the town plaza where they conducted business, had their markets, etc.
I took a few pictures of our house - the one that Arturo pretty much rebuilt over a span of about five years. It is the old colonial style with a patio in the center and the rooms surround that patio. We haven't filled the patio with plants yet because we don't spend enough time there and they probably wouldn't survive our absences during the dry season. It's a house that has plenty of room so if you are looking for a vacation spot in a place where you can just relax and enjoy old Mexico let me know!
