A few words tonight, and I’ll try to include some photos, but the internet in this hotel continues to be frustrating.
We spent some time walking around the Old City here in Mazatlan, and enjoyed seeing the architecture. But in fact, the colonial flavour of the old city is less impressive than the colonial cities we’ve spent more time in. The theatre and the basilica–two “must sees” were both a disappointment. We also walked along the beach, mostly on the wide walkway that stretches for miles between the port and the newly developed beach area to the north. We stopped short of that and had lunch on the beach—shrimp galore.
Alas, my chronic foot problem has really acted up here, so I spent much of the day in the hotel room reading and people-watching from the balcony while Jack walked farther.
We watched an amazing sunset from our own little balcony, sipping margaritas (me) and beer (Jack), then went out for supper – more shrimp – at a lovely little restaurant run by Canadians from Vancouver.
We’re getting back to Spanish–a bit. It always takes awhile.
Tomorrow, to Bucerias. Ron and Janet have reserved us a room in the hotel they’re staying in, and we’ve decided to settle down there for a few days and enjoy the beach before our final drive to Guanajuato—now “scheduled” for Sunday or Monday.
I seem to be staying online, so I’ll include a few shots from yesterday’s drive. (I have no idea why that man seems to be falling backwards. The cows seem fine…)
