Reynolds hit Cactus
We took a tiny bit of time to see the landscape up close
Good Day/Morning/Evening All,
**Right now they've turned the lights off in the mall and we are being asked to leave (I think) we have more videos and pictures they just take too long to down load****
Brad and I are at an internet cafe at a mall in Queretaro with some very loud spanish music playing.
We ended up staying in a really rough place last night in a hotel bus stop. We were warned of a double murder up the road the night before so we stayed stealth. Employed all the standard Reynolds tricks.
We left there and made our way South again with our little tourist glossy map. Brad is now typing. We have passed many a poor dead dog and puppies people have seemed to haphazardly thrown from their pick ups. I guess every dog has their day and in Mexico it comes sooner than most. The odd donkey in the meridian ditch as well.
We passed the Corona factory today and it would put the Campbell River pulp mill to shame. Guard towers walls and all. They seem to take their beer here serious. People are looking at us
Bull on the Ridge
There on all the small hills
like aliens. High fives and thumbs up are the "norm" now.
The city of Queretaro would rival any Canadian one. Clean , very safe and modern. we are impressed. Our hotel is really swanky. We have personal garages lot's of marble and walk in showers. Upon closer inspection though we have surmised that this is in fact a "love hotel". That hasn't stopped the great service from the manager and staff. A+ find for sure.
We took a couple side ventures into the nitty gritty and were chased by numerous dogs. That's the real Mexico!
Tomorrow we battle Mexico City head on......bring it!
Thank you for the advice Lana we are on board now.
Blane and Brad. Out for now.
