We arrived back in Zacetecas after riding in the rain for the afternoon and were fortunate enough to see some beautiful rainbows.
Deb and Dave (who we met at the Creel HU meeting) had not arrived at the Hostal Villa Colonia and we were not sure if they were going to come.
After about half an hour they arrived (in a Taxi - they left thier bikes in town and caught a taxi to the hostel) and we organised to stay with them in an appartment and they had decided to come to the Fenix Spanish Institute with us.
We attended classes, for a week, together and learnt lots of verbs, and we all agreed that our comprehension was increased. Each day our brains were frazzled but we tried to practice what we learnt in our wee home. Our teacher, Toņo was very very patient.

Each afternoon the class took walks around the city and recived some good incite into the history of the city and the surrounding areas. We also visited museums and art galleries.

The week we spent together was also the week of the Street Theatre Festival. We were able to see some 'interesting' performance pieces and were treated to a spectacular fireworks display. All events were free.

We caught up with Michael, who we also met at the HU meeting, and had dinner with him.
We went to a special place the Federico knew that served purple enchilladas. They actually tasted quite good.
Afterwards we all got silly with hats!
