In the centre of Tlaquepaque near Guadalajara in the Centro Historico is a place called “El Parian de Tlaquepaque” built in 1878.
It is a beautiful courtyard surrounded by restaurants and bars. I sat there in may with Narren Young drinking Estrella and listing to Marriachis playing El Rancho Grande.
On my last trip I took some photos of the tiny bars that surround this typical courtyard. I thought they were such funky places, all pouring a good selection of tequilas
Check them out!
It was just after midday, the wind was blowing of the desert and with it came the sounds of a local Norteño band playing in one of the cantinas up in town. It was hot, real hot and my mouth was full of sand and salt from the Pacific Ocean, I had been waiting for my compadre and it felt like I had been waiting for a long time. I had thought about drinking all day.
