Playing "Tourista"

Going to Mexico couldn't be all about just hanging out at the beach so we signed up for a bus tour of Hermosillo that was arranged by the Escapee's Chapter 8 - Mexican Connection.  While this isn't normally our idea of a fun way to spend a day, it was a nice change of pace for both of us.  Here's DannyLee trying to look happy at the Governor's Palace.  Don't worry things are going to get better much sooner than he thinks.  He has no idea of what comes next here!

It was a beautiful day to be out and about and our tour began in the square.  Our tour guides were bright and enthusiastic and their English was fun.  There were 119 people in our group so we were divided into four smaller groups and stuck with stickers.  The locals were warm and friendly and made us all feel very welcome.  We were in the "orange" group and our tour guide was Violetta.  The local vendors plied us with food and we finally opted for some warm pumpkin empanadas.  What a treat!
