Marcela in Monterrey

24 August 2003

Not my favourite city, Monterrey. Its up in the North of Mexico and its big. With big four lane roads everywhere, not a care in the world for pedestrians. And its hot… and to be honest, I’m fed up of the heat now. Anyway, I met up with Marcella (who came to Nottingham for a semester last year) so that was good. Went to some pretty amazing caves with stallegnites and -tites everywhere. Extremely impressive, very cavernous. Although I thought the ‘this rock looks like a cross with a coffin under it, and over there - that’s Jesus’ face’ were a bit far fetched to say the least!

Monterrey - city of mountains, and so it is. Mountains all around it, and we played cards in one of Marcella’s friends’ house, which had a great view of them from a balcony.
