Starting our life in Mexico

We are renting a 3 bedroom, fully furnished, 2-story apartment. We are in a little Privada which is a narrow street that only allows pedestrians. Although we are in the middle of the city, traffic noise is bearable. We hear sounds from our neighbors, birds and church bells ringing throughout the day. We have no yard but we have an enclosed, uncovered patio on the second floor.

We are about a 15 minute walk from the old and new centers of the city. The traffic-free, central plazas in the city are home to beautiful, colonial buildings, inspiring sculptures, and stone-paved walkways. Step out of the plazas, and you will feel the liveliness of the city: busy traffic, hoards of people, and lots of different shops.

I am in awe of this bulls sculpture that is near the Feria (fairgrounds and modern bull ring) here in Aguascalientes, Mexico. There are six bull in total with one horse and cowboy herding them. They are set upon a large island of rock.

Fascinating. You are lucky to be able to live in all of these wonderful places. I bet your camera is really itching.
