A party to give gifts to the bride to be...I can't remeber what it's called
The place with so many a's in it's name!  This where I spent the majority of my time, stopping with friends who have a long history with my family.  In 1970 the Football World Cup was hosted by Mexico and as part of a program for British fans to stop with Mexican Families my dad and my grandparents met a wonderful family who we have kept in contact with ever since.  We try to go to Mexico when we can and they come to England when they to, have the chance.  The family is BIG, two sisters (now in their 80's) Maria has 9 children who all have children of their own and some have grandchildren, Olivia by contrast had only one child who is now a grandmother.  The majority of the family live in Guadalajara and I always feel right at home when I visit.  The city itself is such a busy place, driving is almost suicidal if you've not learnt to drive round there, near misses and almost crashes seem to litter the place!  A few places I'd recommend if you ever come across them - Cafe Naranja, a little place where they serve the best quesadillas!  It's a kitchen in a big van with a large canopy for the seating area and I loved it.  There was also a club called W, a section of the club had sand on the floor just like a beach and the roof slid back like a sunroof on a car and you could see the stars in the sky.  Amazing.
