Things Are Improving, But Not Quite Great !

We now have a window! Not only do we have a real window that opens to the outdoors it also gives us a view of a beautiful plaza.

View from our window, now that we have a window

The room is twice the size with 2 beds. I had booked this room through Priceline, and they followed through when I expressed my dismay to them and contacted reservations here.  Anyway the room is good.  Our tour to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary didn’t happen, our “tour desk” failed to make the reservation!  But all is well, the reservation now definitely made for tomorrow and surprisingly enough the Senor has handled all these mishaps with more grace than I imagined possible.

Morelia is a beautiful city, at least the central historical area.  It’s a busy city people are busy, hurrying everywhere. People walking, young and old women walk arm in arm, seeming to enjoy the closeness of their relationships, folks spend time in the parks, eating and drinking in the sidewalk cafes.  Men wear business suits and have their shoes shined while enjoying their coffee, folks are dressed like it’s winter with scarves and coats, and in general the women in Mexico wear their slacks and jeans tight, but here they are extra tight .  Looks uncomfortable to me. But maybe I’m just envious, although all sizes wear them like that.  Except the indian women who wear skirts or dresses. I’ve seen no strollers, all the women carry their babies in thick blankets in their arms, and there are lots of babies.

Mercado de Dulce

We visited the Mercado de Dulce,  the candy market, with booth after booth of candies of so many varieties and all of which are unknown to me.  There are also other tourist items, and t-shirts, but not a sweatshirt to be found and as it is cool here today, 65, I could have used one.

Stained glass ceilingOne of the hotels has a beautiful, stained glass ceiling, and a person playing breakfast background music on a grand piano in their restaurant.I visited the cathedral, unbelievably gorgeous. It's what I call a real church, still has the kneeling benches, several naves, candles to light and church bell s that chime all through they day. We can even hereMoerelia's Cathedral

them in our room.  I felt very comfortable in this cathedral in spite of its size It has a real organ with 2 stories of organ pipes. I wish we were going to be here on Sat evening as I understand the organ is played on Sat evening. To dark to get any decent pictures.

We found a great little hole in the wall place for lunch, just 5 tables, about a block and a half away, I think we will try them for breakfast in the morning. As we are off to the butterflies in the morning.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.
