So which ones are they then?

Just had to jump in and get a closer view!

A bit blurred - just as well maybe!

Any lady would be proud of these roots:)

Made it to Valladolid hotel very easily I believe. I woke up in time to go there it is! But it wasn't I was pointing at the wrong hotel:))

The hotel is of Colonial style i.e. Spanish, with a courtyard in the centre containing a first class restaurant. The City itself is much smaller than I imagined after reading the guide books. It is certainly Mexican with people that are friendly when you speak to them.

With what was left of the day explored the cathedral ( yes I know another one!),fort/church/convent in which the janitor guy gave a little tour to show us the frescos hidden behind curtains of the church. We toured the convent and gardens for a dollar.

I mentioned the first class restaurant well I can vouch for that after the meal I just had. The guide books were spot on with this one.

One interesting moment was when this couple came in to sit at a table covered in rose petals. Think the girl didn't know where to look! She ordered a coca light and I saw her stirring it and staring around the restaurant. The champagne glasses were not used. Think the boy over did it a bit and was having to work very hard not to be blown out!
