Green Day

Running through the center of town is a body of water which in any other city would be called "the municipal drainage ditch," but is in this case known as the Rio Querétaro. And looking at this we-swear-to-God unretouched photo below, you're probably thinking, "How cool, they dye it green for St. Patrick's Day - just like Chicago!"



Alas, it always looks like this. And we don't think it's because they love the Irish 365 times as much as Chicago does.

Actually looks better than the Chicago river....though in truth the only time I saw it was after sunset....

I think the government shut off the pumping and cleaning thing that was installed with our taxes in the early 90's (probably it doesn't work any more)
