The Rest Of The Visit In Monterrey

We've been busy this week.  I took Bill and Bonnie down to the riverwalk for a ride on the boat.  After we walked over to the governor's palace for a tour inside.   Beautiful building with a small museum.   We took the tour, it was free.  I wanted them to see the Marco art museum which is free on Wednesdays but it was getting late and we were having dinner at our house.

They stayed out at Corceles in Allende where we have a lot.  There is a communal palapa where they were able to park and stay for a few days.  I have been teaching an intensive course this month and the school is nearby so it has worked out well for all of us.  I can go to school and then drive by and pick them up to go touring.

Yesterday we headed for Monterrey again and went to Home Depot to look for something that Bill and Bonnie needed.   After we headed fot the Obispado (Bishop's Palace) and the largest flag in Mexico and supposedly in all of the Americas.   It is a wonderful mirador or lookout and you can tell by the panorama below it does have quite a view.  We had a funeral to go to in the afternoon so we drove back to Allende and said our goodbyes.  They will take off this morning for all points south with a destination of Mahahual, Quintana Roo for a winter of warm air and sunshine.  

Nice shot of the East side of Monterrey and the Cerro de la Silla or Saddleback Mountain.
