Got a room in Durango.



Ask the manager about security, so he suggested and helped me put the moto in the room.

Went for an hour walk.



Mexicans have a lot more art in their towns than the USA, even in the small Pueblos.



I never considered myself to be an art person, but I like it!

excellent

Excellent route Donnie

The large Mexican flag you saw and pictured when crossing the bridge from eagle pass to piedras, is the world largest flag. It is on the guinness records, just saw it last weekend when I was on eagle pass.

I am living in Monclova Coahuila, been working in AHMSA (Altos Hornos de Mexico) maybe you passed Monclova yesterday, it would have been nice if I can say hi to you.

I saw you may missed important tourist spots over here, like Cuatro Cienegas Coahuila, or Parras Coahuila that is on the cuota (toll) highway from saltillo to Torreon.

Been new on traveling on motorcycles, but it is really funny how us mexicans like to go north the border and you Americans like to come south hahaha

My best wishes on your trip and if you need any assistance on the Monclova area here I am

Ride safe
