Day 13 to Day 14

October 20th: Saltillo, Mexico to San Pedro de las Colonias, Mexico
October 21st: San Pedro de las Colonias, Mexico to Durango, Mexico

On the 20th we headed from Saltillo, Mexico to San Pedro de las Colonias, Mexico on the advice of a British lady that was staying in our hotel. The drive was nice. Lots of desert again! We stayed in a quaint, yet beautiful hotel called La Hacienda. Instead of staying in the rooms across the way from the house, we were offered a room in the main house. The bathroom was huge, with a staircase leading to a pedestal sink, a massive open concept shower, and a jacuzzi tub.....unfortunately, as grandeur as the bathroom was, there wasn't any hot water and the water pressure was next to nothing, so it made for a pretty slow and chilly shower in the evening. The lady running the hotel was extremely accomodating, and also very friendly. I snagged the opportunity to take as many pictures of the garden there as I could, and she was more than willing to give us a little tour of the garden, telling us the names of all the flowers in Spanish. This morning she made us a nice pot of fresh coffee, and gave us some cookies to start off our day. Then we were off for Durango, which was, yet again, another drive through the desert. This time though, the drive was a little more chilly, due to the altitude and I actually had goosebumps a little bit when there was a breeze. I'm sure, though, that all of you back in Canada have VERY little sympathy for a chilly breeze when the temperature's dropping quickly there!
