Our arrival, by bus, to the silver city of Taxco deposited us at a charming bus station at the bottom of a hill, with the city and Cathedral towering visibly above us. The little town climbs up the side of quite a steep hill, accessible by narrrow, winding streets. The only cars that seem to make any sense here at all are Volkswagon bugs. The ones you see in this photo, taken from the hotel balconey, are taxis of the kind we used to arrive at the foot of a steep set of stairs leading to the hotel. Our climb up those stairs, dragging our suitcases, was rewarded by a beautiful, cozy set of rooms opening off balconys with spectacular views.
From the common room, where breakfast was served you could see this view of the kitchen. Who was the woman in the painting? I don't know, but I was glad she was overseeing the kitchen.
Loved the tile in our bathroom.
What a beautiful place. Colorful. Cheerful. Beautiful, friendly people.
