Two days after I arrived here, I booked my first Airbnb- “Experience”: A guided walk through 5 of the city center’s churches.
The guide, Sofie, was very nice and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions. I learned a lot about the impact of the chuch on the city’s development and the importance of religion today, especially in the field of education, but also in the daily life of the people today.
Upon recommendation of Sophie, I had lunch in the 7th-floor restaurant of the “Colegio de Escribanos”. The food was good, the view is nice – or not so nice – depending which direction you choose.
A few days later I went with Angeles and her mother to Cabalango, about an hour drive from the city, where the family owns a little house.
Cabalango is a nice and very quiet little settlement in the Sierras, at an altitude of about 900 m. Fresh air, great view. There are a handful of “Kioskos” and little restaurants and a bakery. Of course there is a police station and a health center for medical attention.
Most of the people here are only coming for the weekends or vacation.
