Shadows on Zaragoza Street in Aguascalientes, Mexico

Last Friday was the coldest day we have had this winter. I was told that it even snowed downtown and that it happens once every 12 or 13 years. As we have no heater, I stayed in bed most of the day under the covers to keep warm. The following day it was warm again and has been getting warmer ever since. I think Winter was giving us her final goodbye for the season last Friday.

I was so excited to see warmer days that I went walking and discovered a newer part of Downtown. Along this street in the photo, I found a chocolatier/patisserie. The owner gave me tastes of his chocolates and cheesecake. While I stood there enjoying all the wonderful flavors, I tried my hardest not to make the noises I make when I am eating something delicious. I walked out with a huge piece of cheesecake and will be back later for some chocolates.

You make this street scene so enticing - I'd really love to walk down and sample some of those delicious goodies. The church is beautiful.

The shadows on the big building are lovely, the lighter and darker sides seem to enhance the glow of the sun, especially on the dome. The sidewalk looks inviting: shadows to cool us down if too hot, and the sun to warm us up if needed. A friendly street!

What a simply magical street scene, like time forgot it. Such unusually cold weather for you this year, I guess us Midwesterners are just used to it...don't mean we have to like it though...ha!

Hey Harriet said...

What amazing colours in this photo! I'm giggling at you trying not to make noises while enjoying your samples. You must be an entertaining dinner guest ;)

What a relief for you that the weather is warming up a bit. As much as I like staying in bed, the thought of having to stay in bed all day to simply stay warm would be frustrating.

Oh and yes I kind of suspected that Anthony had a little crush on me. He asked me to 'go with him' the following year. We were a couple for all of two weeks. When he started to pull another girls hair I knew it was the end of our relationship...

I love this street scene! And your story hit the 'universal subconcious' with the 'making noises when I eat something delicious'! Wonderful!

What a gorgeous place! And it sounds delicious, too! Wish we were seeing the last of winter around here, but we're not that lucky. Love your beautiful shadow shot.

That's funny that you were trying not to make noises as you ate the delicious goodies! I love this picture with the yellows and blues. What is that building in the centre? It is really pretty.

that's a beautiful street, the building at the end is particularly lovely. Sounds like the chocolates were good too!

Dorte said...

What a pretty place ... and nice to get back to knowing about the chocolate, I guess :-)

Zaragoza Street is very famous. It is an exceptional renovation of a home that was originally built in 1895.
