Ruinas de Jauja

We left the factory and headed to other ruins, this ones located in the city of Tepic, which also was a textile factory, there is not much information on these ruins, but from what I was told while being there is that one of the most famous songs in the Mexican folklore was written inspired by a girl that worked here, "El Son de la Negra"

while it was still raining I asked to stop because this road grabbed my attention, although it was not raining hard, my camera is not water-proof so taking this had to be quick.
