Just returned from a trip to Morelia in the state of Michoacan.  What a gorgeous city.  Reminded me of what Italy might look like.  The population is 500,000, but seems larger.  There a lot of young people in this city.  The average age is around 25.  There are many specialized schools such as art, music and engineering.  This is a very cosmopolitan city with loads of cultural activities.  As you know, Debbi and I have been to about 60 different cities in Mexico.  Morelia is in the top five of our favorites.  
We stayed at this hotel for $60 U.S. per night. 
The streets and the landscape are kept spotless.
J. C. and Vickie enjoying the open air bus tour of the city. 
This is the most ornate church we have seen in Mexico. 
The architecture throughout the downtown of Morelia is pleasant on the eyes.
Sunset provides stunning silouettes.
J.C. searched Morelia walking tours on his computer.  He printed about 5 pages of things to see in Morelia. So we browsed through museums and historical buildings at our own pace.  It's a great way to see a city.

The Morelia library is converted from a church.
