La Carbonera School Children Visit Gto

These children from the primary school in La Carbonera, a community a few kilometers past the bus station, toured Guanajuato Capital several weeks ago. They, their teacher and several mothers visited the Iconographic Museum devoted to Cervantes' Don Quixote novel, the Teatro Juarez and the historic Alhondiga.

Here a few of the girls are coming downstairs from the foyer used for decades by ladies in the audience who wanted to touch up their makeup during intermission.

The boy in the other photo had just jumped up to imitate the posture of the Don Quixote statue visible in the background. Then, just as quickly, he sat back down to draw.

Arcoiris (Rainbow Connection), a bi-cultural women's organization in the city, worked with the school community teacher to arrange the trip.
