Isn't this a classic photo from Mexico?

Yesterday we did a little day trip from Mazatlan up into the nearby mountains to visit a couple of the nearby villages, El Quelite and La Noria. We caravanned with several other English-speaking couples (mostly Canadians), and Odel and I got to ride along as passengers for a change. How relaxing!

This is a shot of the front of the restaurant where we ate in El Quelite, and where I had the very best beef I have tasted in my life. Sonora, the state just north of us is widely known for beef, and that is where it came from.

El Quelite had its start as a silver mining town, so has the wonderful old architectural style of arched doorways, long, shaded porches and flower-bedecked interior courtyards. It is completely charming.
