Had a LONG days drive through N Mexico, and we were quite tired, fatigued, ready to quarrel, were using non-standard English, hungry and sick of being in a car.
We made it outside of Zacatecas, hoped to find a hotel outside the city as we were ready to camp in a cow field at this point, but all the cow fields were fenced in, so into the crazy traffic Z we went.
At rush hour on a Friday.
Was not a happy set up - at all.
Got funneled into the madness of Z and found ourselves helplessly caught like rats in the road system, terrified and having way too many close encounters of the collision style, we spotted the City Express sign, and ditched off the hellish highway (pulling a camper trailer, BTW) and soon pulled into CEexpress's parking lot
Truth to be told, the lobby could have been filled with a Bandito motorcycle club reunion and Dracula transvestite convention, it would matter not, we were getting a room.
As soon as I approached the door a well appointed gentleman opened the door, the lobby was full of light and cheer, the desk were attentive, the rates were great, $52. $ 645 Mexico peso, the staff nearly rushed outside to help us unload, our room was perfect, small, perhaps, but remember $52, we are so happy to have stumbled here, I believe we will stay here for several more days.
And,tho,as we have been here for all of six hours, they evidentially provide a transport service to the Centro, which sounds great to me, cause we have no more interest in driving our 12 passenger one ton van anywhere in Z but out of here.
Hope to use that tomorrow, as we ARE NOT fireing up our van until leaving.
Three cheers for City Express, as far as Sue and I already concerned.
