WEDNESDAY (Miercoles), June 1
We took a taxi from the Roca Azul RV park in Jocotepec (hoe-CO-toe-PECK) to the Hotel Morales in Guadalajara (Gdl) yesterday afternoon. Trip took a little more than an hour and cost about $35. The RV park manager let us store our camper in the storage lot for $2.94/day. We’re planning on leaving Gdl Saturday.
While out for an evening stroll, we stopped at the Teatro Degollado and bought tickets to a Friday evening performance of the ballet “El Flautista de Hamlin” (The Pied Piper of Hamlin).
We stopped at a bandstand to listen to music. I got up to take some photos. On the way back an hombre who wanted to practice his English began talking to me. One of the questions he asked was, “Is your wife boring?” I had to use my pocket translator to show him that “boring” was not the word he was looking for.
Ate breakfast this morning at the Mercado San Juan de Dios. We like to eat in mercados when we can because the food is good and cheap. This morning’s hearty breakfast for two came to $7.
Walked to the Instituto Cultural Cabanas from the mercado. A 35-year retrospective of the sculptor Paul Nevin was on display. The other large show was “100 Years of Art” which showcased art produced by Guadalajaran artists in the last 100 years.
Back to our AC room by 1.
We went out for dinner around 5. Our first choice, a block away, was packed, with people waiting for tables. We took a taxi to a restaurant we read about in Trip Advisor. Not worth the taxi fare.
On the way back to the hotel we saw an anti gay marriage rally in the plaza by the cathedral.
