We wandered through some alleys on our way to the main Cathedral.
Look at the ceiling details.
The carvings on the beautiful white exterior and on the heavy wood doors are magnificent.
After leaving the cathedral, we walked back past the Franciscan Church and found that a service was just beginning - we took part in the service, understanding barely a word but feeling at peace and blessed that we were able to be here and be part of this special time.
We relaxed with some coffee in the pretty little park area in the square. White Christmas garland was carefully draped along branches of all the trees and it looked like snow.
From here we were on that eternal search for a bathroom and found one in a strange little store - standard price, 5 pesos - the lady handed us a wad of toilet paper and pointed us to the usual seat-less toilet in a corner. We also found that place to be the local internet cafe - look at the coin operated computers !
|Sian - this one is for you. You fell in love with the yellow school buses in USA, here is a yellow school bus in Mexico.|
|La Escuela Coahuilla (Coahuilla is the state that Saltillo is in)|
|Their cleaning and attention to detail was every bit as good as mine!|
|Cooking our Lunch|
|Enjoying our beers before lunch|
|Karin, this one is for you. Oh how much fun we would have being let loose in this place|
This little adventure is just about over as we head back home to San Antonio tomorrow to regroup, try to shed a couple of Mexican food pounds and start preparing for our retirement adventures in earnest.
