Here, in this portfolio you'll find 2 descriptions: one of these, is about my house, an the other one is about a representative place that is located in Guanajuato.

My house

My house is located on the west of Victoria. It has 2 floors, a garden and a little backyard, is color yellow, maybe is not very big, but is comfortable and i like it.

It looks like this from Google Maps.

In the first floor, there are the living room, the dinning room, the kitchen, a  half-bathroom and the little backyard. These don't have any walls to separate one from another, except the bathroom. The color of the walls is pink, but the kitchen is covered with glassed tiles color white.

When you come in, you can see the stairs next to the door and the bathroom, in front of this, there are the dinning room and the kitchen, as you can see in the pictures below this paragraph.

Now, in the second floor there are 2 bedrooms: my parents' room and my brother's room that shares with me. As you can see, the bathroom is next to my brother's room and this is next to my parent's room.

The garden is outside, is not very big but it looks cute; and that's the favorite place for my mom. There, is where she has her plants and flowers as tulipans, roses and a lemon tree.

The alley of the kiss

The aley of the kiss (El Callejon del Beso) is located behind the Plaza Los Angeles, in the Historic Center of the City of Guanajuato.

It is a romantic corner formed by two balconies separated by only 69 centimeters, the scene of the famous story for which it owes its name.

It's not a big place, but a lot of people go there only to kiss each other for many reasons. One of them could be that they think that's romantic, another one is that they want to feel the same sensations that the lover ones had in that place.

One of the most surprising legends was born here and is this one:

Legend has it that there lived two people in love called Carlos and Ana. Ana was a rich Spaniard who lived on the left side of the street, and Carlos, a poor miner who would rent the house on the right side for a few gold and silver coins.

Of course, the Ana's father didn't want her to marry him because he was very poor. He wanted a rich man of the same class to marry his daughter. One night the father surprised the young lovers, when he found them kissing, shoulder to shoulder, reaching out from the balconies of the houses.

The father warned his daughter, "If I see you kissing that man again, I will kill you." Ana didn’t take her father seriously, not believing him capable of doing something like that. The next night, the father came upon the young pair again, this time saying nothing. He went down to his bedroom and returned to bury a dagger in his daughter.

Carlos, in muted horror, bestowed one last kiss to his beloved, on the back of her hand, and then committed suicide in the La Valenciana mine after parting with his everlasting love.

Now, it is said that all the couples in love who visit this site should kiss on the third step, which is painted red, to avoid seven years of bad luck.

This is why this spot, undoubtedly one of the most typical of the city, is called the Callejón del Beso (the Alley of the Kiss).
