While we had driven around the fringes of Morelia a number of times, we had never ventured into centro and really had the feeling that we probably had missed something.
Prior to our departure for Mexico, we prearranged with Jim P. to meet for breakfast at LU's located at the Hotel Casino. It was planned that Jim's wife Linda and two friends of theirs Clay and Dorian would be there. Quite appropriate since Clay and Dorian were from New Mexico and also involved in the copper business. I was a bit apprehensive about driving into centro since Morelia has typically given us fits but being a Sunday, we had no problems until we found the main drag closed for Sunday walking and bicycling. No big deal as we were able to work our way around and found a parking garage about a block and a half from the hotel. We had a good breakfast and enjoyable conversations over breakfast. Clay, Dorian and Linda went their separate ways after breakfast and Jim was kind enough to take us on his $300 walking tour (inside joke) of centro. Kathy and I really appreciate the time and knowledge extend by Jim! All in all, we learned a great deal and really enjoyed all that he showed us.
We now know that we have been missing something and at the very least will spend a night or two in centro to do some more exploring/learning and that a Saturday night is in order for the lighting of the Cathedral and the fireworks.
Jim: Thank you once again!
PS: Sorry that I disappointed by not showing up in a Brooks Brother button down shirt! (another inside joke)
