I was up at 4:20 - unable to sleep - maybe from the smell, maybe it was the satin sheets - very nice!
Juayau is only 11 km away-
so I was there in no time and luckily my room was ready. It's gorgeous!
Hotel Anahuac only has 6 rooms but each one has been decorated by a local artist. My artist was Gerardo Gomez-
Every Saturday and Sunday is the Feria Gastronomica when local restaurants set up booths around Parque Central. People come from all over the country for delicious food-
Dishes run from $3.50 - $6.00 US and there's a great variety: rez, cerdo, camarones, pescado-
Cooking is done on the street-
And there is live entertainment-
At the north end of Parque Central, which is super clean by the way Santa Ana, is the church-
Inside is Cristo Negro, carved by Quirio Catano during the 16th century-
There are a lot of souvenir shops set up around the square too-
Supper was the best meal I've had since I left home: frijoles, platanos, corn on the cob, tomato/cucumber/cilantro salad, chorizo, fried onions, tortillas, potatoes and skewers of beef, peppers, onion and pineapple-
Dessert was a piña colada in my very own piña-
And, the tool the woman used to hollow out the piña-
I want one of them! How much easier it would be to serve piña!
I'm looking forward to seeing a waterfall tomorrow and visiting 3 other villages along the Ruta de las Flores!
