Hotel Baluarte is just a few blocks away from the sea and the zocalo, both within few minutes walking distance. Gran Cafe de la Parroquia, an institution in Veracruz, is also nearby. The pool is quite small, but it's good enough to take a dip in to cool off from the scorching heat of Veracruz. Very neat and tidy hotel. The receptionists don't speak English and they really couldn't help much in suggestingw hat places to see -- but I realised, it's the same elsewhere even in 4/5-star hotels in the city.

... you need to spend money, so we did. We got a couple of beers and I went out and tried the water. As usual it was sweltering hot in Veracruz, and as I got in the water I expected to cool off, but the water temp is about the same as the outside temp, it's like a nice warm bath. I swam around on and off between drinking beers while Bobbie sat in the sun and tanned. It was a really good afternoon, I was happy I got in the water before leaving because it was a good ...

... was only a few minutes drive away. His mother, Angeles, was already waiting for us with lunch ready. Another good sign! Muy amable los dos! I immediately felt comfortable and at home. They have a big almost colonial style like house. The external walls are all ceramic tiles. The floor were also all tiles with neat design. The furnishing was also like antique – it's like stepping back in the 1950s ...

Los piramides

... de Tacuba, which is a ¨living museum¨ kind of place. It opened in 1912 and is basically as it was - grand decor, with tiled walls, lots of oil paintings, and waitresses in very prim uniforms. I think some members of the band might have been playing there for almost 100 years too! It was another chance to sample some classic Mexican fare - Nat´s enchiladas con mole poblano was very rich and tasty.

... on an old Azteca site it is slowly sinking into the ruins and the swamp beneath it, the floor edging away and the statues bending over as in supplication to the gods that heralded this site before them (shades of Pythonesque humour in this one). It's a magnificent structure, grey and dark and hugely imposing, as many of the churches are in this city. Beside it is the Presidencia Nacional – the National Presidents Palace.
