Taxco, a great historic town

I first went to Taxco in 1974 on my way to backpacking to Belize and Guatemala. There were a few tourists in town, but not many. I remember some of the silver artisans were selling “coke spoons” (cocaine was becoming a popular drug at that time), but also silver pieces that were museum quality. I have since returned to this hillside town a few times over the years, and it still holds the fascination for me, wandering the steep cobble-stoned streets and remembering the history that dates back to the conquistadors.
