Farewell Zacatecas and Hotel St Lucia. An historical building with rooms tucked away under huge brick arches. Right in the heart of the historical centro district which has a UNESCO world heritage site appellation.
Around the one way system to Ruta 45. This part of Zacatecas is about 5 centuries old. Narrow streets. It felt as if we were in Spain.
We were pulled over at three police and military check points today. Vehicles were being searched. Serious business. I always open my visor and lift the face of my helmet and smile a motherly smile. I met fellow adventurer Deb Hewson in Durango and now I have a better understanding of the purpose of these checks. Take a peek at her blog letterstocurlyflat.blogspot.com.
We went through the historical centro of Aguascalientes on the way.
Safe arrival at the Howard Johnson Centro Historico hotel. A huge fiesta was well underway. I'll show you in the next post.
