I am still not fully recovered and Ray has come out in empathy for me and got a milder form of whatever it is I've got. Neither of us were looking forward to the journey, but we soldiered on..
Getting out of Zacatecus was slightly more of a challenge, but eventually we found the road we wanted and headed for Puebla. This is supposed to be a lovely little place with ruins and a historic area.
|Looking back down on Zacatecus|
|He was going faster than we were!|
|Construction, buses, mad drivers and a screaming wife, Yeah go Ray!|
|A bit of variety, mad horse and cart men. You can see the state of the roads from this too.|
|A rather warm Ray and some spooky friends.|
|Lovely sky again|
We finally got into Puebla just before the sun disappeared altogether and hunted down a hotel. We pulled into one and asked to see the room. It was awful and when I saw a sign saying charges were by the hour, that was it, I was off, no way Jose.
We did find one far more suitable, called the Aristol, we booked in and were given a room with no outside windows, it was actually quite weird. The hotel was okay, but was very stark and cold feeling, absolutely no atmosphere at all. We booked one night, thinking we could always extend our stay.
Tired as we were, we went out to have a look around and saw a couple more religious venues that looked lovely at night.

We were obviously a bit tired and grumpy yesterday, and we reached the conclusion that it was time to move on. Again we had an extended tour of the city, trying to get out, but once we found the route we were flying.
We got into Coatzacoalcos just after 6pm and booked into a lovely hotel by the sea. We are planning to stay here a couple of days.
