Saltillo, [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/world_wide_ride/80730788Coahuila, Mexico

Today we left Monclova and headed south east to Saltillo. This was a nice short 200 km day. We only had one stop at a military check point....Again he wanted to see the bikes and was very curious to see our camping gear. We bought our first Mexican gas from Francisco and met some fellow riders headed to a rally in Saltillo. We have a very cute hotel in the historic district very near the Cathedral de Saltillo.

We walked around the town ate Tacos with a cipro chaser for lunch. The shops are full of fancy ball gowns, cowboy hats, and very high heel shoes.

Dan found a great Pollo Restaurant where we had dinner for 2 with beer for 9$.Daniel has discovered "MUI Natural" which is a delicious yogurt sundae shop. We went there twice today. There was a great punk rock band playing up the street with an amazing horn section.

We laughed so hard when we found out later that this says don't walk in the garden and NOT don't pee in the garden which is why we took the photo.

We were allowed to climb the bell tower and explore the roof of the Cathedral de Saltillo. There is a small hole in one of the shutters in the tower and this produces a pin hole colour camera effect on the walls of the tower room. From the roof you can see the whole city.
