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.

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 as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
