Las quinze letras

Abraham, my CouchSurfing host, found me in a little restaurant of the city center. I followed him and his green Beetle to his house. He is the oldest brother of a family of seven. They live a large house in Guadalupe, right next to Zacatecas.

I had a great time with Abraham. We went out to chill in the local bars, hiked up the rocky hill of la Encantada to get a beautiful view of the city, and wandered in the markets. His family adopted me like a son and it was great to feel like a local for a week. We had very interesting discussions with his father about his studies in rural ethnology.

To reach Guanajuato, Abraham advised me to go South, via Aguascalientes, instead of goint East, towards San Luis Potosi, as the road would be more interesting. But before heading South, I wanted to go to Real de Catorce. In the end, my bike and I stayed more than a week altogether. Gracias hermano!
