Zacatecas,

The 350 km from Satillo to Zacatecas in straight as an arrow but smooth as silk. Thank goodness for GPS or finding our hotel in the warren of narrow cobblestone streets would have been a nightmare.

We are 2 blocks from the Cathedral in the cultural center. We spent a lot of time just walking around since there was a new stunning sight around almost every corner.

The Museo Rafael Coronel is a must see. It is located in a partially restored ruin and houses an incredible collection of traditional masks.

We walked up the hill from the hotel to take the cable car across the valley to the summit and then walked down the "the walk of the cross".

We came upon a parade of people in traditional costumes.

The Gorditas at Dona Julia are so good we had to go back again just before we left for San Luis de Potosi.
