    The National tourist board of Mexico should hire you Donnie. Those pictures are great. So many people do a good job of vistas and cool views. I like the way you add all the historical shots and even the simple door shots.

    Enjoyable RR.

    Too bad I didn't know sooner, I've got a house in Pachuca (which we rent to family there) but they could have pointed out some places to see when you were there!

    Did you try the famous Pachuca Pastes del Duque while you were there? They're like empanadas and either meat or jelly filled. Just off the highway to Mexico City, near our house, is my favorite seafood place.... yeah I know, a guy from CancĂșn who has a favorite seafood place in the middle of the country!
    :huh :rofl

    Their Caldo de Cameron is the best I have had in Mexico!!

    Obviously I'm still following your RR, stay safe!

    Glad you are still following! We just passed through Pachuca on the way to Toluca. But I did stay at Pachuca about five years ago. :D

    We had passed by this the day before when searching for a hotel and walked back down to check it out.

    It stays cloudy here a lot and has a light mist a fair amount of time, but no real rain fall during our time here.

    But this was open. BTW, I finally figured out how to turn off the flash on the camera. It sure makes museum photos better! :deal
