Strolling

We have had a guest with us the past two days. He is a student from MBI from Cameron’s floor in the dorm. Brennan has been traveling over the two-week spring break, and on his way back to Chicago from Costa Rica, he flew into Mexico for a couple of days to check it out. Unfortunately, he picked up a bad case of food poisoning as he was leaving Costa Rica. We adjusted our plans for his two days with us as he was too ill to do all that he’d hoped.

Nonetheless, he was feeling a bit better on Thursday, so I drove him to Querétaro in the afternoon to get a look around town as we talked. (BTW, Cameron has been in NW Indiana with relatives these past two weeks resting, studying, putting in summer job applications and interviewing with a few prospective businesses. So he missed out on the fun.)

Brennan is a photographer and with such a picturesque colonial city to explore, he happily snapped pics for a few hours. I brought my camera along and looked for something different to capture because I’ve been there so many times that I’ve taken pictures of most everything already. Even so, there’s always something new or some new perspective to gain.

Here are some pics I came up with on our short trip this go ’round:
