Ever wonder why they call it Zacatecas, Zacatecas? Or why it’s Guanajuato, Guanajuato?

Thomas Pynchon’s hotel

(March 9, 1963)  Hotel Central (Rm. 32) Ave. Juares 111, Guanajuato, GTO, Mexico

In 1963, when Time magazine sent a photographer to Mexico City to find Pynchon, legend has it that he jumped out the window of his apartment and fled into the mountains [Guanajuato] to escape.
