Arrived in Durango, headed down to the centro area looking for the Hotel Catedral Park, aptly named because it was across this street from the
Catedral

Parking the bike for a couple of days in the lobby



The surprise of Durango is how beautiful and clean the city is, I was up early the next day and the cleaners and gardners were already at work. There is a tremendous amount of renovation going on as is in the rest of Mexico as they repair their history.

I had got in touch with a fellow advrider by the name of SR and we were going to meet for lunch but until then I wandered around and gawked at the city

Tram over the city


The mechanics of the tram

Chapel at the top of the tramway



mural on the wall of a government building



Doing the touristy bit I went to some cultural exhibits


Next up: Meeting SR face to face
