Day 5 -- México 2008 -- Camino
An hour and a half in, I get to the church I used as a landmark. Unfortunately there was a wedding in progress when I arrived, so I didn't spend too much time. I try to take a couple of HDR sequences since the church is in shadow and backlight by the midday sun. I head off to the next. Again I tried a few HDR sequences, and off on my way.
I keep walking, until I hit the railroad tracks. Oops I've gone to far. I head back to find my main reference point, the monument of the revolution. I finally make it to Cristina's house. Oops, I'm in trouble, I didn't check in to let them know what my plans for the day were. When they called the hotel, they were told "the gringo went to work".... hehe ... I guess a backpack of camera gear and a camera on my hip could look like that.
Cristina headed out to hook up with Luis and his family, I head out for a snack with Nelvin. Well Nelvin is along for the walk, he's not that hungry I grab some eats and we make our way back to the house.
It's decided I will prepare bacalao for christmas eve so we head to the Sorianas (a major grocery store) to get the salt cod and get it soaking. Issac will change the water a couple times for me until tomorrow.
Over all I walked for five hours and my dogs are tired, I should have worn my boots. I hang for awhile and then back to the hotel. The day was enlightening, but nothing of interest photographically....
