Guanajuato II Part 4. Thirsty?
I have seen fountains of all sort of size and shapes in Guanajuato city. Small ones in alleys, big ones in plazas or plazuelas and midsize on street corners, like the one above. Many of them, specially the small ones don't provide water anymore or they are closed. But their presence remind locals and visitors these fountains provided water to the population in the past, before every house had running water like it is today.
Now, on the other hand, if you are not fond of water and prefer alcoholic drinks, well, Guanajuato offers that too, on its own style. The taberna in the next sketch is a wonderful place to spend a night to satiate your thirst. Inside the taberna, the old atmosphere and the voice of an old man, singing his love songs to the rhythm of his guitar makes you want not to leave and stay forever in this bohemian splendor. A taberna where snacks are free and salty to make you want to drink more....and more...and more. We prefer the second choice, after a long day walking, a place like this transformed tired people to happy people. What a night...I hope Guanajuato don't get us use to it. Risky business.
