Saltillo (day 2)

Saturday February 16… 11:00pm

All our neighbours disappeared early this morning, so never got a chance to speak with them. License plates were from Quebec though. We didn’t get up until almost 8:00am, and by then they were packed and leaving. We relaxed
and caught up on internet for the morning, and then took Whiskey for a walk around the neighbourhood to the rear of the hotel where we are parked. We’ve decided to stay here for another night…even though it’s expensive, there’s a good chance nobody will come knocking for the rent for the second night. If they do, that’s fine too. But this way, we can leave the city on a Sunday when there’s very little traffic, and we can get to the border on a Monday…again hoping there won’t be as much traffic.

Later in the day, we left Whiskey in the motorhome, and walked about 4 km each way to the cathedral in the centre of town. Even though I’m not a church going person, I’m always amazed at the architecture of these buildings and how they managed to build something so ornate a long time ago. This church in particular was built from 1745 to 1800.

When we got back to the hotel, there was another RV here…a pickup pulling a small camper trailer, with Manitoba plates. After a while we spotted a couple outside, and Amy and Cal introduced themselves. They’ve camped for quite a few years on the mainland interior of Mexico, and really enjoy it here. They joined us for a while after supper and we exchanged stories.

Tomorrow, we’re looking forward to going to the Garcia Caverns. (Thanks Mom!) About an hour drive northeast of here.
