Amateur Hour - 2003 draft, Part III

Travel: Hasta Guadalajara, Baby

Aunque el nombre de Guadalajara deriva del arabe-- Wad-Al Hayara, que significa Valle de Fortaleza o Rio de Piedra-- esta ciudad es tan mexicana como sus famosas tortas ahogadas y su musica alegre. Su ambiente tranquilo y acogedor y su gastronomia diversa son unos de los tantos atractivos que esta ciudad ofrece. Guadalajara, capital del estado de Jalisco, esta llena de historia y anecdotas que van mas alla de la conquista de America por los espanoles; de hecho es y ha sido ciudad sede para muchos eventos importantes a nivel internacional y ciudad sede para los juegos Panamericanos del 2011, poniendo a esta y a Mexico antes los ojos del mundo. Sus calles limpias y expanciosas les dan el aire de las grandes alamedas de las viejas ciudades europeas, acompanadas de una población amistosa y cordial que te recibe y te da la bienvenida de una manera muy especial.

Although the name “Guadalajara” is derived from Arabic-- Wad-Al Hayara, which means Valley of Strength or Stone River—this city is as Mexican as its famous “drowned sándwiches” and its joyful music. Its calm and charm, along with its diverse gastronomy, are just some of the attractions this city offers. Guadalajara, capital of the estate of Jalisco, is full of history, and anecdotes about the city are even older than the conquest by the Spaniards. Guadalajara’s clean and ample streets have an air of the grand avenues of old European cities, and along with the friendly locals, welcome visitors in a special way.

Will they play?

It's Fan Appreciation Night here at Nationals Park. Or at least, it's supposed to be. As you're probably aware, it's been raining for a while and there's no sign of it stopping anytime soon.
