Slept well the bed was reasonably soft but the pillow a little hard…I know I set myself up for some nasty comments but last night was the first night since I was in England last summer that I have not slept on my flannel sheets with my own Hutterite pillow and comforter!!!!!
Had my strawberries and packed a good lunch as I had signed up for an escorted tour with the hotel….there was another couple from Canada and then we went to another hotel and picked up another couple and guess what it was the older Mexican couple that had took my seat yesterday and they spoke PERFECT English!!!
Our guide Lois was driving a nice ford van and I was lucky to get the front seat…
The first stop was a reservation type of land where the natives live
We were taken to a cave where we told it was OK to take photos….. 8 people lived in this cave and as I was beginning to find out everywhere the locals are trying to sell you their handicrafts!!
This is looking into the cave and the following shots are all taken inside the cave!!
My rocket candies and hair bands were a huge success
The beautiful church built in the 1700’s…
We were told that there were no seats because the church is used for parties and dances!!!
The whole area was littered with incredible rock formations and you could use your imagination to guess the shapes!!
This was the next stop
Which was reached on a narrow dirt track
The waterfall was just a trickle but in rainy season it is I am told gushing and quite stunning, still pretty nice view..
There was an option to hike to the bottom and I was the only one who did and I had a guide a kid about the same age as Paola and Daniela and boy was he true to the spirit of the name of the Raramuri he took off like a flash leaving me in his dust imagine how he was on the way up!!! He took this photo for me
This was a very lovely area!!!
Horseshoe lake was the next and last stop
This could be any lake in Northern British Columbia!!!
I love this photo
The beautiful lake, the lady weaving even the hind quarters of the local dog!!!
It was a great 4 hour tour the places I would never have found on my own and well worth the 150 pesos!!!!!
After some lunch and a read of my novel I set out on a walking tour by myself…
This photo below was taken from the traffic circle looking one way
Cave dwellers with an apple tree at the entrance. It really is like stepping into another world the Raramuri are a race that are small in stature, very dark and not really very friendly, maybe just shy!!!
I was in desperate need of real food so I scouted the town and finished up here
Two tables and my cook
I had a local dish called hamburger and fries….30 pesos!!!
Enjoyed another quiet evening listening to music, journaling and reading….quite a remarkable day and one to remember!!!
