Almost a year ago, as part of my Master’s program, I joined a group going down to Queretaro, Mexico to work on written and visual stories about the area.
I’ve been to many different places in Mexico, but never to Queretaro, so I was really excited to go. It’s such a beautiful city, with amazing architecture, including an aqueduct that runs through the city of Queretaro.
The story I was working on was actually about the Sierra Gorda region of Queretaro, which is a few hours away, down a very windy road (almost all of us got car sick) near a town called Jalpan (but more on that later).
So my time in the city of Queretaro was mostly spent transcribing interviews and logging video footage, but when I wasn’t doing that, I was drinking tequila and wandering the streets.
Queretaro had some amazing restaurants, we stayed near the town square, which has tons of great little places to eat and really cute local shops. On our last night in town, we had an amazing dinner at Tikua Sur Este, where we had probably 10 different courses, including a stuffed pepper with chocolate sauce that I still think about.
If you have a chance to go to Queretaro, I would highly recommend it, I can’t wait to go back and visit again sometime.
