This morning Trevor and I said goodbye to John as he was heading over to Mazatlan and then Baja before heading back home to Washington. John, it was a pleasure to have ridden with you the last week. Take care and ride safe.
We made it into Zacatecas around 2-3, so we still had plenty of time to check out the city after getting the bikes settled and taking a quick shower.
Zacatecas is a really cool colonial city that was founded back in the 1500’s. It seems like nearly every block has a church, plaza or park on it and it’s also considered a World Heritage City. The climate is also perfect since the city sits up at over 8000ft; warm but not hot days and cool nights. I really like this place. I want to rent an apartment here for a month or more and just hang out.. I wish.
After wandering around the city for a couple of hours we went looking for dinner. We decided to eat dinner where we saw the most local people eating. This turned out to a place simply called La Cabana. Nothing too fancy but it was good chow at a low price.
