We never once felt unsafe there. We had a lively, multi-lingual conversation with China, (in French, Spanish and English), the coordinator at the Municipal Center for the Arts.

Old town is full of character and characters – Antonio, China, the sunburnt tourists, the theatre and music students… We are leaving a city we know we want to revisit. I call it the Nice of our Mexican journey. (I surprised myself falling in love with that French city as well...) You never know what you'll discover. It's what I love about travelling.
