Patzcuaro was one of the towns that Louise and I had such a great time at last year, so with that in mind, we thought we’d share the town and experiences with our traveling companions. One afternoon last year we took a tour through a wonderful hotel that was one block off the main plaza and was so reasonable that we both decided that if we were to come back to Patzcuaro we would stay there. Well here we are and “what the heck happened to OUR hotel”? The doors were shut and locked and nobody seemed to know why… OK, now we’ve got to spread out and find something “nice, clean, and reasonable” quick. It didn’t take Carol, Maureen, and Louise long to find just the perfect place
AND we even had two parking places right at the front door…could we have found anything better, no way. It did seem that I had a little competition for my parking spot. The city market is held daily right acoss the corner AND just were I was to park our car I found a little lady telling me that I would have to move forward so that she would be able to set up her market stand...how sweet and how could I resist but to move forward 5 feet or so...
Well first things first. Fortunately they had a large central patio with comfortable chairs and tables set up so that we could have our “happy hour” before heading out to explore the city and find our evening dinner.
Even tho we had a short drive from Morelia it was still a long day but following happy hour and dinner we still found energy to do a little shopping. About the only thing that we found to spend a few pesos on were CD’s and DVD’s. We could always find good deals on them. One thing that seems to be constant at the CD booths is that they all play their music LOUD !!! One of the advantages of playing the music loud is that it makes you want to dance. Well dance we did, right there on the street with a crowd of locals and visitors gathering to watch those crazy “Gringos” have a great time. I must have really looked ridiculous as I danced to the Oldies but Goodies Rock-n Roll CD wearing my cowboy hat and poncho. With our long drive, drinks, dinner, and now dancing behind us, we had to head back to our hotel and off to bed…we have another long day ahead of us tomorrow.
