Ceramic chickens

Tlaquepaque

Tuh·laa·kay·paa·kee Aztec (Nahuatl language) meaning the best of everything. It’s a pueblo magico just outside of Guadalajara, full of high-design craft galleries featuring ceramics, furniture, metalwork, glasswork, textiles, and lots of pom-poms all made in nearby Tonalá.

I started at the tiny, but inspirational Museo Regional de la Cerámica. Mark Munson: I think you’d love this place! It’s an eclectic mix from the traditional to the quirky and downright weird!

The town was a pre-Easter mob scene of Mexican tourists–plus horses, musicians, kids, strollers, balloons, and dogs. Sweet empanadas were displayed by the thousands.

I took a bunch of photos and retreated back to the tranquility of Guadalajara.

Next: I’m leaving on a jet plane!
