Our new friend Irma D sent us our first two postcards from Mexico. She writes: Hi greetings from Guadalajara, Jalisco which is land of Tequila, Mariachi, Chawena the national sport, amazing hand crafts, and excellent weather most of the year. This is Mexico. This is a UNESCO WHS the hospicio cabanas is very nice. Inside you can find one of the most important murals "The Man on Fire" from Jose Clemente Orozco the most famous muralist in Mexico. Hope you like it! [ We sure do]
The second postcard reads: Tequila is best known as being the birthplace of the drink that bears its name "Tequila" which is made from the blue agave plant native to this area. The heart of the agave plant contains sugar and had been used by native peoples to make a fermented drink called Mezcal. The popularity of the Tequila drink and the history behind it has made the town and the area surrounding it a UNESCO WHS. It was also named " Pueblo Magical" meaning magical town by the Mexican Federal Government in 2003. - Irma D.
