Since I am still on bed rest and haven't left the house in a week, there isn't much to tell about our goings on in Guadalajara, though Vlad and the baby got stopped by the cops at 4:00 a.m. when Vlad was taking him on an early morning stroll. Thankfully, little Jaroslav evaded arrest, but the police were curious about just where Vlad lived and what the heck he was doing with that baby.
Homebound life aside, we did find some way cool, awesome stuff in Guadalajara prior to having a newborn that I can regale you with for at least a couple of posts.
For instance, churros. Churros, for the uninitiated, are somewhat like a cross between doughnuts and funnel cake sprinkled with sugar, except heaps better than either. And we just happen to be staying around the corner from a Guadalajaran churro icon. Churros La Bombilla has been around since the 50s and has a diner-esque quality with booths and couples sipping milkshakes. People of all ages head to this establishment that pretty much only sells churros, ice cream and hot chocolate. That they have thrived for 60 years on the fried batter and hot chocolate market is a testament to how good the place is.
