The city is alive, music, mariachi, cafes, artisans, everyone out in the street as soon as the sun rises and late into the night. Every day is a holyday! So much to see, absorb, so much to paint here! I am not ready to paint yet, need time to absorb all this constant motion of people, markets, shops, and venders. Soon I’ll start painting.
