Our next stop was about an hour down the road in Morelia. There are no RV Parks near the city so we settled down in a WalMart parking lot. We were both suffering, me from the remnants of two or three days of the “runs” and Norma of just starting the “runs”. We did not want to pass up seeing the Historico Centro of this old Colonial city however so we put on our best game face and took a cab downtown. The centre of attention is the Cathedral which took over a century to complete. It covers a couple of blocks and is very impressive. The rest of the Centro consists of buildings from the Hispanic days. Progressive building codes prevent modern buildings in the area so businesses (banks and such) have taken over the old buildings and repaired them. They look exactly as they did back in the days of the Spanish occupation. The city is known for it’s pink stone construction and it is on display everywhere.
