Holy Thursday

I looked forward to this day all year long so we could go back to the churches we saw last year (and get better photos), and because I love seeing how this day is done in Mexico.  I wasn't able to do as much for Holy Week as I wanted to, but I made sure this day had nothing else going on so I could focus on this.

We also tried ice cream and ate birria in Las 9 Esquinas.  It's a lovely spot and I wish we'd gone earlier.  We walked through last year but didn't spend any time there.

And we went to the Expiatorio last of all.  We even got to see the Apostle clock at 1 PM.

The last two images are the Governor's Palace and the Rotonda de los Jaliscienses Ilustres
