"Mi Casa Es Tu Casa"

"Home Sweet Home"
Quinta Don Jose - Tlaquepaque, Mexico

Our favorite bed and breakfast has become our
"Home Sweet Home"
as this is about our twentieth stay there.
I wonder if that beats any world record?!

When we were living in Tecoman we would make a trip to Guadalajara just for a little R&R at our B&B.
Tlaquepaque is sort of a "suburb" of Guadalajara.
The shopping is wonderful.

After a day of shopping though it is a treat to end the day
with a cool drink and a chat with Charlie at the bar.
Often times there are other couples who enjoy visiting with
other guests at Quinta Don Jose. It's fun to find out where
everyone is from and what brought them to Mexico.

This particular evening... which was just this past Tuesday evening, we enjoyed listening to the beauitful sounds of the harp. You can see the picture of the young, very accomplished harpist in the collage.

We enjoyed a meal of grilled lamb and also red snapper.
The meal was delicious. It always is.

I've written about Quinta Don Jose several times and I will again soon as I will want to show you what one of their bedrooms looks like.

I wanted to make sure that I featured the mirror in this collage as it is a work of art. The artist who constructed the frame also has his work at the Vatican.

Come back soon for more pictures of
this home and away from home for us where we are always made to feel like this is
"Home Sweet Home"!

I love to stay at B&B's. I do believe maybe you have set a record. I'm probably at 8 or 9. I love feeling like I live there, the food is usually fantastic and the grounds so meticulous.
This looks heavenly.
