Blog a la Pibil

"Blog a la Pibil" was born in Mexico, and was originally based on the adventures of Josue and Lupita, who were traveling in Mexico for two months. This blog is now a continuation of the life of Lupita, who has been restored to her life as a mere mortal in Los Angeles.

Shopping in Tonala and Tlaquepaque

Today, we went to Tonala and Tlaquepaque, two suburbs of Guadalajara famous for their great shopping. We started at Tonala, by far the cheaper (and less affluent) of the two. Every Sunday, the stores put their goods out on the street and there's a giant street sale. Everything can be found in Tonala - jewelry, ceramics, earthenware, huaraches (sandals), glassware, fake flowers, baskets, cloth. We wanted to visit the factories which dominate Tonala, but most were closed because it was Sunday. After Tonala, we went to Tlaquepaque, to Calz. Indepencia, a pedestrian walkway with dozens of upscale artesian shops. We looked but didn't touch.
