This is the Zocolo which is a large park type area with alot of greenery.
We are still in the Zocolo. The church in the background is approximately 500 years old. There are alot of shops and restaurants on the streets surrounding the Zocolo. We went in the pasteleria and purchased a treat. I had a croissant. It wasn't the same as the ones I am used to. This one was much heavier and more bread like. Total time to get there, wander around and return was 3.5 hours.
Later in the afternoon I made my first journey to the supermarket to pickup some things that I needed. It was my first experience navigating and making purchases at the store. Total cost was less than $12 US. I also purchased two 1.5 liter bottles of water to use as weights. I think they were about .30 each.
Last night for dinner we had crepes and they were so delicious. They do not have syrup here but use sweetened condensed milk in it's place. They were so decadent. We ate dinner at 9:30 which is common. I can already feel that my belly is growing.
