Alameda park is located on one edge of the old town area in San Luis Potosi. It’s lovely, large and well used. This is the duck pond. Many of it’s features could use some attention, particularly fountains, but it’s still a beautiful park and I’m impressed how the Potosinos use their parks and plazas.

After our exciting adventure in Cerro de San Pedro, Alex left Marc and I off on the far side of the old town in San Luis Potosi. It allowed us to walk through El Centro to get home and enjoy the perfect weather and hunter’s moon out that night.

This is the huge church across the street from Alameda park. There was a wedding going on, so we just stepped inside.

We stopped at one of the many Costanzo candy stores. It's a local candy and chocolate factory. Tasty stuff. Looks like they are ready for Halloween! http://www.chocolatescostanzo.com/2014/

I love street performers, like this clown in Plaza del Carmen.

There's a king Tut exhibit that I really must catch in the old town.

Wish I knew what this play was about, but there was a lot of laughter. Seemed a bit bawdy.

I'm a professional vagabond. I quit my cubical job in January 2014. Since then, I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, The Camino, and taught English in Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Mexico and Peru. I'm exploring the world and you can come too!
