Smoking Hot! El 8 y el 9 de noviembre, 2019

I’m not sure what’s worse - the cold or the heat.  I guess in the heat I can still go outside barefooted and go for walks and there is always shade to stay in.  But today was so hot - 32 with 72% humidity.  I was out for about an hour and came home soaked!  I’m so glad I have AC!

Yesterday was a relaxing day.  I went to the gym, had my usual green juice on the corner with Mary and Fernando and picked up some shrimp, 10 actually, for $1.39!  They were breakfast today-


I’ve got some more for tomorrow!  I also stopped at a chicken stand and got the juiciest tasting 1/4 chicken, just like in Guatemala.

I walked past La Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe which is in front of the Plaza de Armas and City Hall.  Construction began in 1918 but the central tower was only built in the 1950s.  A concrete crown was added in 1965 but the October 9, 1995 earthquake destroyed it so the new crown is made of fibreglass-


The crown is hoisted by angels.  It’s designed to resemble a crown worn by Empress Carlota of Mexico in 1860-


I love street art-




I’ve also spent the last 2 days planning the next 4 months: booking rooms, deciding on itineraries, finding out what there is to see, times and costs of buses and I also booked my flight home:  March 14 which will be here before I know it!  I really enjoy researching but it sure takes a lot of time.

Tonight, I’m off to see Mama Tits https://youtu.be/O_JuDZjG6Zg. She/He is supposed to be hilarious so I’ll see.

Tomorrow the gym is closed so it’ll be another easy day.  I’m planning to watch some football at the bar down the street.

Life is good.

El Faro, Mazatlan, Mexico, el veintiuno de noviembre, 2019

My mission for the day was to get to El Faro before it got too hot. Well, I don’t know what time that would be - I was sweating buckets.  I...
