Miracles never cease we got to Mexico!

We got up in time, had enough fuel to get to the airport, got to the airport on time without incident, got on our plane with out a problem. We arrived at Leon airport and our driver was there waiting for us as we left the immigration and customs area and for the most part the drive was uneventful. After checking in at the B&B we went to a local restaurant for lunch and had a nice lunch; lunch was about $11.oo for two and it was good.

After our nice lunch we walked down town, I of course had the wrong shoes on and my feet hurt. We found our way to the center of town the Jardin in front of the church. We also found the bank open and we changed dollars for pesos and used the machine teller to get money (pesos). No problem, I even used my funny Spanish to ask for smaller bills with the teller again no problem. We went to a cafe beside the jardin and had some coffee while discussing our next move. We left there for a return trip to the B&B and while walking back checked out a restaurant with a great view of the church and did a little grocery shopping at a local shop, we got the essentials tea, snacks, beer, sodas, fruit juice, and goat cheese for breakfast.

Later in the evening we went to dinner at the restaurant we checked out earlier and had a wonderful dinner. I had pecan soup and baked fish with coconut sauce and Samantha had a salad with goat cheese and grapes with chili relleno with beef, everything tasted wonderful. After dinner we walked back to our room and did a little work on the computer.
