September 2010 Travel Photo: Guanajuato Sun Roof
The city of Guanajuato is the capital of the Mexican state with the same name. It is located in a bowl with historical, New Spain-style colonial dominating in the center.

The mornings were cool, to the point my fingers ached. However, once the sun's rays conquered the hill and filled the bowl it warmed up into 70 degrees (lower to mid 20s degrees Celsius). The home I rented had a roof which had tables and a wooden shade roof on top. From here I could eat breakfast and enjoy the outdoor sounds lie a man selling propane while he yelled "/ghaas/", cars in distance, bells from the many churches in town, and the market a few blocks away.
An added extra was the glass floor on the roof which acted as a skylight for both the library on the second floor and the kitchen on the main level.
