A Place Called Tlaquepaque, Jalisco Mexico

When friends ask where Jordan is I tell them he's in a town called Tlaquepaque, Jalisco. Its population is around 560,000 and the word Tlaquepaque means in Nahuatl "The place above clay land". It has wonderful and colorful stores most famous for their blown glass and pottery. Another town close by it Zapotec, most well known for their rugs. There is a beautiful garden named after "the father of Mexico's independence" Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the garden being called El Jardin Hidalgo.


  1. I thought the dolls were cute till I saw the skeletal one ! :)

  2. hahaha... El Dia De los Muertos "Day of the Dead", something they celebrate around the same time we celebrate Halloween. I guess they take the deceased their favorite foods to their graves and celebrate their lives.
