Yet Another Centro Excursion

Our second full day as tour guides, we spent in the Centro Historico. We actually made it into the Teatro Degollado for the very first time. And of course we visited the Governor's Palace, the Cathedral, and did a little bit of strolling. We had another fabulous lunch at La Chata- just can't really go wrong with them, and a paleta (popsicle) for dessert, as the afternoon sun was slowly melting us away. We browsed some of the pedestrian streets, and were astounded at how much variety of "stuff" you can really find downtown. It really never ceases to amaze us. And we made a short stop at the jewelery market on our way back to the car.

The rest of our visit with M's parents, we spent around our neighborhood, checking out the local shops, walking down our construction laden street, and seeing where M spends lots of his time- school.
