Searching for direction in Torreon~
This afternoon a few Chicas & I went in search of our local Pewter Lady! While we have been many times to visit her establishment it is in an older part of town which has many twists & turns. The tip off for us all should have been that we started our journey on Calzada Colon near the statue of Cervantes's Don Quixote..... Don Quixote’s imagination was distorted causing him to see things that weren't there. Our imagination wasn't distorted but the streets certainly seemed to get a bit tangled. We finally arrived after our fearless pilot Joan of Arc Fons pressed onward. Like Quixote she kept driving in spite of her helpers poor map reading skills & bad sense of direction. The problem in the older areas of Torreon is that many of the street signs get moved or "misplaced". Along with twisting streets & bad parking, negotiating the small streets can be in the very least wild & hairy!! Oh well! Fun times, Chicas:) Never a dull moment~Shopping in Torreon, a few pesos. Spending time with friends, Priceless!
