    by Jacquie KubinPublished September 25, 2008

    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.
