The Square Circuit

Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

public squares

Plazuela San Fernando is probably my favorite place in Guanajuato. Here, the boy reacquaints himself with the pleasure of running around public squares like a madman (as he did a year ago in San Francisco's Union Square, last summer in Tompkins Square Park in NYC, and any number of other times in any number of other places).

We left Pittsburgh in a freezing rain, were late getting to Dallas because of de-icing, and almost missed the flight to Leon/Guanajuato (our luggage did miss it). But an 80 degree day and the jacarandas in brilliant purple pretty much make you forget all of that.
