San Luis Potosi, Mexico Part 2

You can view the first part of my trip to Mexico on my San Luis Potosí, Mexico Part 1 post

I’m back with more photos of San Luis Potosí, Mexico! If you missed my last post on San Luis Potosí, Mexico (check it out here), I explained that I went there for ten days with my sister and parents for my sister’s junior world racquetball tournament. San Luis Potosí isn’t a tourist destination at all, so it was a great place to get a really authentic Mexican experience. It was a beautiful town, and I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a place in Mexico that doesn’t have any tourists (I saw a total of two tourists the whole time we were there).

This is the second part of the photos I took in the area around the hotel and tournament, and next I’ll be posting photos of the beautiful Old City! 🙂

You may have see this car in my sneak preview post! My alma mater, Meredith College, has a crazy tradition called Cornhuskin’ that’s hard to explain (as we say, “you just have to experience it”), but seeing these cars made me so happy!

I think these were stray dogs, and it was really sweet seeing them all sleep in the sun together

I kept thinking of the quote “So many cacti!” from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt because there really were so many cacti all over the city

  3. Love the cacti and colors of the wall! My two best friends are from Mexico and I’m really hoping to visit them soon!

    I am soooo convinced !!!
    I have a thing for VW bugs . That one with the elote is hilarious !!!
    You have captured the city so well and I loved traveling along . Thanks so much for sharing !

  5. I love the vibrant greens of the city; it looks so relaxing. Also, that door knocker is amazing. But my favorite part about this piece (and maybe Mexico in general) is how they mix those skeletal figures with vivid colors in backgrounds architecture. It’s just so aesthetically pleasing to me.

  6. Robin says:

    These pictures are awesome. There’s nothing I love more than colorful buildings! I need to visit Mexico soon.

  7. Kelly says:

    Love the pictures of the corn truck and the skull door knocker. So cool!! Also nice to see a culturally authentic area of Mexico that I can visit. Also hope your sister did well in the tournament!!

  8. Alex says:

    I love the gallery, Julia! It’s amazing the history you can witness in some parts of this wonderful world. And Mexico is full of beauty.

  9. Alyse says:

    Interesting juxtaposition of the well kept buildings with the dilapidated walls. It’s very stark to see the two side by side. I’d visit here. Why is it that all these cities outside of the US so rich with visible history? It’s like you can see the age and heritage written right into the streets.

    • Julia says:

      I know, I love seeing all the history in cities around the world since the US cities lack so much! I would definitely recommend visiting San Luis Potosi if you get the chance!

  10. I love how colourful the photos are. It looks amazing.

    Wonderful photo montage. We’re heading to Mexico this year and can’t wait! Your post has provided more inspiration to head to areas that are off the grid!

  14. Staci says:

    I just want to take all those dogs and beautiful tiles home with me – beautiful pictures!!

  15. Mary says:

    That door knocker is so scary!!! It would be perfect for Marley in A Christmas Carol.
