Small as it is, it is still a great place to sit. We have had a small garden built in front of the wall and have started planting. As you can see, it is still a work in progress.

Centro Medico de Toluca
Having made lots of friends, Keith says adios
We bought a picture for our house here
This city is higher than Toluca. It was very cold there. Notice the extra clothing that everyone is wearing.
The Town Hall is getting all decorated to celebrate Independence Day
At the centre of the town is a very beautiful church . In this church all that glitters is really Gold. Notice the wedding taking place
A very reluctant late comer to the wedding
A fruit stall near the city centre. We bought some delicious mangoes
This city (and surrounding area) was a centre for the production of wool garments. They were extremely beautiful, well-made and inexpensive.
This lady hand knitted all her goods on this special hand loom.
A family luncheon
A vision in stained glass, this strikingly large heritage building anchors one side of the main city square. This area itself is extremely beautiful and full of history. A free trolley runs hourly around the centre of the city. We entered the gardens only to be astounded by its beauty. Inside the sunlight was filtered through the stained glass, casting it in a golden glow.
Entrance to the Gardens
Eduardo and Keith wait for the others to get organized
