This is my third summer in Guanajuato. I always stay with Ana Cervantes, pianista. Her house is the perfect place for me-two hundred steps up from all the activity in the Centro Historico: music, street theatre, art and people walking around the plaza. This summer, I am working on the cordels–little books–about the famous people in the history of the accordion. Ana has a beautiful patio where I have set up shop.
