MAZATLAN, Mexico

Sunday, Sept. 28

Los Cabos was damaged so badly by a hurricane 2 weeks ago that it was taken off our itinerary.  Instead we docked in Mazatlan.


A shuttle took us to the port gate, and we walked for about 20 minutes through a nice residential area 

                                            to get to the city ‘centro’.



In the cathedral, I asked for permission to take a picture 
of this little girl because she reminded me of the girls in First Communion dresses in the 1970s.

Nestor said the Mercado has improved a lot in how the meat and fish are presented since he was last there about 10 years ago.

There are restaurants on the second floor of the Mercado: 

Diana even bought a dress at the Mercado.

There's an upscale bakery/restaurant near the cathedral.  When I was checking out all the many choices, 

another shopper pointed out one item which she said was very good and only found in Mexico.  

So, naturally, I ordered coffee and the
Helado de Guayaba:  Delicious!

I enjoyed Mazatlan.  Shopping was fun.  The vendors kept assuring us everything was “just about free”! 

Diana got right into the bargaining and also bought a couple of nice necklaces!
