_This week has gone by pretty fast, but on the other hand, my butt is getting seat worry from all the miles we’ve driven… After having lunch and walking through some of the stores of Quiroga, we continued our drive to Mazamitla which was another 3 hours away. We were losing light by the time we arrived and we were hoping to find a hotel available for us. It really looked dark when we saw all the people in town. I thought by the crowds walking and driving the streets, that all the beds in town were taken. Not only that, but we couldn’t even find a “legal place” to park so that we could checkout the possibilities for a night stay. I found a small spot right on the corner but unfortunately it also blocked the crosswalk…well I won’t be but a minute… FORTUNATELY, we got 3 rooms AND it comes with FREE PARKING in an ENCLOSED parking lot !!! We never did find out what brought all the people into town but come morning most were gone. After we unloaded our suitcases and delivered them to our rooms we met out on the balcony for our “happy hour”. Dinner was held overlooking the plaza and one of the “prettiest” churches…did I just call a church “the prettiest”???
_Well it is an unusual and good design and one that fits perfectly in this mountain town amongst all the Pine trees. I haven’t traveled all of Mexico, but Mazamitla is one town that uses Pine beautifully in a lot of its buildings and I haven’t seen that elsewhere. I think we all enjoyed our evening walk-around but I did notice that some of us went back to the hotel early to get a little “shut-eye”… All rested up, we enjoyed breakfast and started to re-pack the cars for our continuing trip. Our next stop…
