Where I stayed
So, i have finally decided to take the advice (after about 2 years now) of friends and family to start writing a bit about my travels. I am not a capable blogger and therefore will not be blogging. And, I am not a stellar writer, so really all this (and hopefully if im not too lazy to continue) and subsequent posts will be is a stream of my consciousness, so to speak; a rundown of some of the things i do and see, places to stay and eat, books im reading, etc...in a city for my own future reference (in case i return) and your reference should you decide to visit one of these cities in the future and need a starting point.....
everything (including pics) will be from bb which means i might actually be able to do this...... :)
id love to hear your thoughts and comments....if youve been there, add your own experiences, comments, suggestions..if you want to read about specific topics for future posts, let me know....if you just wanna write something, do that too....enjoy :)
Monterrey--Located in Northeast Mexico, the capital of Nueva Leon, is the 2nd largest city in the country.
Was only here a day and it was on business, so this post will be pretty short.
It is a mountainous region located at the foot of the Sierra Madre Mountain. A beautiful sight to wake up and open the curtains of your hotel to. Although the 2nd largest city in Mexico, the air seemed fresh.
The people are friendly, and the locals are knows as Regios.
The landmark of Monterrey is the Cerro de la Silla, which unfortunately I couldn't get a very good shot of, translates to Saddle Hill. If you see an image of the mountain, it really does look exactly like a saddle.
Four Points Sheraton--here is it important to note that there are TWO of the same hotel with the same name in the city--one near the airport and the other near the famous local mall--gallerias. This caused us confusion on our first night and when we were arranging transport!
Ask for Galerias if you want to stay more central.
Sierra Madre Brewery Co. is right next door to the Four Points Galerias--The slogan outside reads "estamos aqui por la cerveza"...so, of course we decided to stop in. The company locally brews their own cerveza--there are 14 options. Unfortunately I can't say I got to try them all, but I did quite like the Regio Lager. The food is similar to that of any local brewery--the fish rolls were quite delish.
Good morning Monterrey by Air on my 7 am flight out.......
