To be fair, though, we are more drawn to museums and aquariums than karaoke bars and casinos in any case. So here are pictures of the aquarium in Mazatlán (accent on the last syllable, those of you learning Spanish!)
We figured this guy at 3-4 pounds of spiny lobster.
|Moray eels - so cool! Are more than one a slither if eels?|
|This mural showed sea life at different depths.|
|Wouldn't want to run into him!|
|Not likely to see this guy, he's so deep he carries his own light.|
|How cute is this guy?|
|Don't stick your hands in the crocodile cage. Good advice!|
It's been a nice couple of days here, although it's cooler than we expected. There are a lot of very white Canadians here. We're down in the newer area of town, but we got to investigate old Mazatlán today. It's very peaceful and beautiful.

|I hope they're fixing this place up, it's a lovely old building in disrepair.|
|The square in old town, so sunny and pleasant to have a cup of coffee and people watch.|
There's an old opera house here that they restored in 1992. Dancers were stretching on the stage.
These shots are before the restoration.
In the archeological museum, a tomb and figurine.
Dinner time! We're off to Twisted Mama's, a Canadian bar not far from here owned by Cindy from Olds, AB. She's been here 14 years, and we had a great burger here yesterday afternoon. I'm looking to see what fresh fish she has. I had dorado last night at the Shrimp Factory, and the fish here is GOO-OOO-DDD!
