Zacatecas

Zacatecas is all about exercise. There are no level streets and a lot of stairs. That’s a good thing, as there is a lot of great food here!

There are a lot of tourists in Zacatecas, but I have seen no Europeans or Americans, just Mexicans. I was looking forward to a market I remembered from 2009 that sold only books and periodicals, some quite old. It is gone. The printed page has been replaced by sweets, cheap jewelry, and Chinese junk. Señor Velarde would be saddened.
