Guanajuato’s most famous viewpoint

The view from El Pipila is always excellent, but when the sun is about to go down and two days of heavy storms have just concluded things can go from excellent to outstanding.

I learned this past week that weather.com is not to be trusted when it comes to weather in Guanajuato. The forecast just before I left the USA was for highs in the 80s, lows in the 60s, and a few sprinkles the entire 10 days I’m in Mexico. When I arrived the streets were flooding from extreme amounts of rain. The rain was incredible for my first two days here. The revised forecast is for highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Too bad I didn’t prepare for such temperatures.

Today’s photo comes from the end of the storms. Weather.com said we had a 100% chance of rain yesterday afternoon and evening, yet there was no rain and the skies were beautiful.

I took a bus from near Hakata to the Fukuoka Dome area. Today’s photo is out the left window of the bus as we sped along the highway (福岡高速環状線). Out my window to the right was Hakata Bay. The sky was preparing for the incoming typhoon.

May 18th National Cemetery

Last week I got on Bus 518, near the front gate of Chonnam National University (where the May 18, 1980 events began in Gwangju), and rode to the final resting place of many of the individuals who took part in the Gwangju Democratization Movement. This tower, to the left of center, is known as the May 18 People’s Uprising Memorial Tower (5·18민중항쟁추모탑).
