Another day in Magic town as some call it and once again that day will start with you enjoying a home-cooked meal by the staff. No rushing out the door this morning, you will follow breakfast with a bit of pampering. Indulge in an in-house spa treatment or go a little more hard core with yoga or Pilates. Maybe you just want to sit with a book, it’s your choice. Once we’ve a chance to center ourselves it will be time to hit the streets again and another wonderful meal.
Meal With A View
A short walk down toward the city center and we will come to yet another Jardín, somewhat more modest than that in the main square. Just off that garden is our next culinary destination and once again on a wonderful rooftop that affords a view of multiple churches. Tapas and Rosé anyone?
To Market We Go
Now that we’ve sampled the menu it’s time to do some guiltless shopping in the Merecado de Artesanias. This wandering corridor of booths and stalls stretches across 3 city blocks and is teeming with folk art, silver jewelry, beaded bracelets, ceramic animals in crazy hues, Talavera pottery and a favorite of most guests, wonderful, embroidered textiles. The list of items goes on as far as the shops do! Fear not, If your Spanish is not up to par many locals speak some English. To be sure you have no issues though translators will be on hand to help in your purchases.
The trip to the market will not be complete until you make it to the very top where the trinkets, and pottery give way to the items locals come to buy. Fresh produce, flowers, meats and cheeses, boots, hats and cds. Wander through the upper market and discover the real Mexico. Once through the market it will be time to head back toward the house and relax, then freshen up for dinner. If you dare, grab a street churro or duck into that store you missed.
Feed Me, Wine Me
Don’t worry about which footwear you’ll need for the streets! The night’s dinner will be held in one of the houses your group is staying in. A private Chef will be on hand to create a memorable meal complete with wine pairing.
