@@@@@@@ Here’s some of what the Lonely Planet – Mexico chapter Northern Central Highlands has to say about Aguascalientes: BACKGROUND This prosperous industrial city is home to more than half of the state’s population. Despite its messy outer (defined by ring roads), at its heart are a fine plaza and handsome colonial buildings. Museums are its strong point: the Museo Nacional de la Muerte justifies a visit.

It was a rather long, winding journey. Pete and Murlene's motorhome broke down at a traffic light. We were not too far from the campground...actually it was an arena that we dry-camped at. Once we got to the campground and parked, no one wanted to go into town. Rich had Cathy, Ed and I for cocktails and then Rich and I grilled the remaining frozen salmon that I had. It was quite...
