    Merenderos

    Guacamole

    In Aguascalientes I found a type of bar that has its own name/category of "merendero." These places typically offer you a series of snacks (tapas, in Spain) which are generally much better than the peanuts or potato chips you might be used to. As long as you are drinking, they will keep refilling and cycling different snacks for you.
    I found that most of these places were located around San Marco park and church - why i don't know, but that's where they seem to be!

    Water Delivery Truck

    Drinking tap water in Aguascalientes is not safe. It won't kill you, but it could make you terribly sick.

    So everyone gets drinking water delivered in large water bottles.

    I spotted this cute little truck and just had to take a photo of it. It looks ideal for the task at hand and is probably very efficient to run.

    Begging in Mexico

    Like in every other part of Mexico, you will find a number of beggars in Aguascalientes. The ones here appear to most often be little old ladies.

    Seeing them makes me realize how incredibly good me & my fellow Canadians have it back home.

    At every Fair in the country a Queen is elected. These are some of the last ones from San Marcos Fair. Find more of them at the Reinas por Siempre link at the official website.
