Our guide picked us up at 8:30 am for a tour through the city in her car. No being shoe horned into a tiny van this time, we were going in style. Unfortunately, her idea of speaking English was only slightly better than my Spanish.

I'm constantly reminded of what passes for English in other parts of the world. But on we went with our half sort-of English and half spanish.

Isn't it? This convent was built in 1533 and renovated in 1960, but what you see here is original I believe--it looks like it has just cleaned up from a fire at some point.
