  • Mexican Comida Corrida on Main Street

    Creel Restaurants

    At time of my visit in March 2008 the restaurant scene in Creel yet had to take off and the choice was limited to a handful of family-restaurants serving Mexican comida corrida and dishes from the local tradition. Restaurant Veronica, in the heart of Main Street, was a popular place for an informal meal in a homey atmosphere. On the menu a choice...

  • Exploring the City Center

    Chihuahua Things to Do

    Main Chihuahua's sights are clustered in the City Center scattered in a few-block area. With all due respect, there isn't much to be impressed with about the tourist sites and the same city center - an unbalanced blend of colonial buildings, modern constructions, small streets and wide avenues - is not too pleasant to walk around, but anyway you...

  • Parque Central El Palomar

    Chihuahua Things to Do

    This is a relatively new park that was built on an area that was cleared and the people moved to newer neighborhoods. Apparently this had been a high crime area that was very hard to control and moving the families and tearing down the "slum" solved the problem. There is a bandstand that is shaped like a pigeon coop, a statue of Anthony Quinn (a...

    Ride a first class train through Mexico's Copper Canyon. This is the train seen on PBS's Great Train Journeys. The scenery is beautiful. And there is a definite feeling of "I'm not in Kansas anymore." The train is only a few cars long.
    The last car is an open air car with a bar and a bartender. And the dining car is lovely to sit in and watch as you traverse hundreds of bridges and ride thru countless tunnels.

Nuevo Casas Grandes

  • Paquime Ruins

    Nuevo Casas Grandes Things to Do

    The ruins include multi-storied apartment and storage buildings, roasting pits, ceremonial areas, canals and waterworks, ballcourts and interesting features such as the "Serpent House". The entire area is exposed and it can be very cold and windy in the winter and I image windy all year round - be sure to dress appropriately.

    Nuevo Casas Grandes Things to Do

    Visit the museum at the UNESCO Human Heritage site of Paquime (formerly known as Casas Grandes). It is a gorgeous building with very well done exhibits. The gift shop has equisite native crafts in it and the only thing that save me and my VISA card was that the shop was closed when I was there on New Years Day. There is a great deal of influence...

  • My "no art at all" attempt at pottery

    Mata Ortiz Off The Beaten Path

    The people at the Andres Garcia Pottery Shop let me try my hand at making a pot (under their supervision) - as you can see my results would not even count as art for a five year old - this is harder to do that it looks.

Prices are very reasonable and they will bargain just a little (about 5% or so).Juan Quezada is a world-famous artist and is very respected for the help he has provided to his home...
