Zeb and Eider Duck visited the market, or Mercado, in Mazatlan. Then we walked to the main plaza, or zocalo. We admired the fruit available from this vender.
Here is another vender with even more choices for shoppers.
The policeman was directing traffic in this congested area.
Mom told us that most old Mexican cities have a main plaza, called the zocalo and the main cathedral faces this plaza. Mazatlan’s cathedral is old and beautiful.
Inside people were working, preparing for a ceremony almost ready to begin.
We are not sure if it was a wedding, but the flowers were being delivered and we saw a young girl in a beautiful long white dress. She may have been the flower girl?
Across from the cathedral, in the park, the gazebo is very pretty.
Near the gazebo, the monument to military heroes stands.
Since it was near Christmas, Santa’s temporary home was on the edge of the park.
He was not home when we were there. Probably supervising the elves. We really liked this Nativity scene.
Santa Claus and presents are fun, but we all remember the real reason for Christmas. When you are in a Mexican town, visit the main plaza, or zocalo. It is a peaceful and pretty part of any town or Mexican experience.
