We stayed in the ancient town of Pátzcuaro that dates back to the pre-Christian era. It is considered to be the "crown jewel" of the state of Michoacán. What a delight with several beautiful plazas, impressive churches and cobbblestoned streets.

Pátzcuaro and the surrounding towns situated around Lake Pátzcuaro is home to the Purépecha Indians and still one of the most indigenous areas of Mexico.

They are famous in these parts for the wonderful crafts that they produce and sell in markets, shops and along the streets. The markets are always a great place to spend hours browsing. They are also filled with food stalls, which is always Ron's favorite part. He loves to sample all the different foods.

We are enjoying exploring Mexico more each day.
