Friday, April 7th – Colonial City of Alamos
Today was a rather blah day after the thrilling dolphin adventure from the day before.
Primarily a travel day, spending most of the time on the bus once again. Short photo stop to see the Deer Dancer statue then on to Wal-Mart for a chance to grab some snacks and wine.
Lunch was in a private residence that was lovely.
Our group is split into two different hotels in Alamos. We got the Mansion where the majority of the group got the old convent.
I think our part of the group got the short end of the stick this time around, but we are still comfortable and cozy.
Alamos is a quaint old silver town. We walked the couple blocks to the main town square and it sure reminded us of our many trips to Guatemala, especially staying in Antigua. We have a 2.5 hour walking tour to explore further in the morning.
Our dinner this evening was a drawn out affair with an hour cocktail party with mariachi band, then an hour dinner of carrot soup, followed by the main course of stuffed chili relleno, rice and cold slaw. Dessert was a combo flan and chocolate cake.
After dinner another band played and sang for us. We all managed to get pulled onto the dance floor at one time or another. We finished the night off with a conga line and much laughter.
GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful that our group is fun-loving and that everyone seemed comfortable to check their silly pride at the door, and danced as if we had even a tiny bit of rhythm, which in all honesty we had very little. Oh well, we had fun in spite of ourselves.
