Hermosillo and Back

While in Hermosillo we had time to eat out quite a bit. If you talk to people in Chihuahua, they have the best beef. If you talk to people in Nuevo Leon, USDA is the best. Well, in Sonora, they too believe they have the best beef. We ate at the Sonora Steak Restaurant that is in front of the Holiday Inn. Apart from the ambiance, service, and cleanliness of the restaurant, the beef was delicious. I split a 200 gram ribeye with my co-worker Adrianna. It was the best.

During my stay in Hermosillo, the convention was held at the Araiza Hotel just down the block from the Holiday Inn. 280 teachers attended and it was sponsored by Pearson and MacMillan Publishers. Teachers came from all over the Northern part of Sonora as well as Hermosillo. On Thursday night, a distributor held a party outside with live music. Great snacks and cold beer were on the agenda along with dancing and lots of conversation in English.

I spent Friday night out to dinner with my friends Idolina and Monica. We ate at Mi Mariachi. The food was very good but the place looked rundown and dirty. I wouldn't recommend it. Saturday morning I took off bright and early at 7:30 for Monterrey. I couldn't resist taking some mountain shots on the plane.

Flying over Saltillo, Coahuila

Even with dense cloud cover, you know you are in Monterrey, Cerro de la Silla (Saddleback Mountain) really sticks out!
