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
