I fell in love with Denver in 1990 when my family immigrated from Mexico. As a nine year old, I was only familiar with the concrete jungle of Mexico City and the actual jungle of of Veracruz, Denver was like nothing I had ever seen before. What stood out the most were the pointy roof houses with perfectly manicured lawns. More intriguing than snow was carpet! I thought it was strange that there was cloth on the floor. I'm still not used to that one, it seems so unhygienic.

Lately it seems that many other people are also falling in love with Denver, specially after Marijuana was legalized (which I'm sure is just a coincidence). Although the highways can be frustrating during rush hour, I get the sense that we are becoming a haven for artists. Walking around downtown Denver I feel surrounded by positive energy, and with almost every turn I see beautiful art. Below are just four pictures that I took. They don't cover all the beautiful things I saw, just the places I remembered to pull out my phone to picture.
