Back from a short long-weekend trip to the two small cities of Morelia and Pátzcuaro. It was my first trip to Michoacán and it was charming, especially the “pueblo mágico” of Pátzcuaro, whose buildings have terracotta roofs and are painted the standard magic town colors of white and red. Barely had time to take in anything more than the most popular sites (with room squeezed in for visits to a couple off-the-track graveyards, of course!) Will be back for another, longer visit soon.
