To ride back to Parral from Creel I chose to do another route. It wasn’t that spectacular. But I still liked it 🙂
I was up early and anxious to get out of my cramped quarters. As I looked down the main street in Creel is was a ghost town.
There just wasn’t any soul to the place. No life. No hustle and bustle that is so prevalent in Mexican towns. I understand it is still the low tourist time. But that is just the point.
Anyways … I rode out and stopped for gas. Beside me was another adventure rider on his BMW. We talked for a bit. He was from Zacatecas Mexico out for a weekend ride through the curves of the Copper Canyon.
Highway 16 and 24 to Parral
Despite thee road being kind of boring and straight. I enjoyed my ride. It was sunny and warm. There were nice rolling hills. And I was taking my breaks.
My Route for October 23, 2016
Day off in Parral
It was nice to spend a day off in comfortable surroundings. Parral itself was not that nice, at least within walking distance of my hotel.
I looked around for a tire place – nothing. Next on my list was a place to get my haircut. I didn’t see anything. Last was a place to get my measurements taken for a suit for my daughter’s wedding – nothing.
To my amazement though, I saw a Vancouver Donuts shop! Never heard of it before, but I had to go in.
The place was full of pictures of Vancouver – my home big city I guess you could say.
I wanted to find out how this place got here and if the owners were from Vancouver. Perhaps someone from Vancouver was even there. Unfortunately, the people there did not speak English. And my Spanish is so rudimentary I didn’t know how to ask the questions I had.
Oh well … I enjoyed a coffee and donut amongst the pictures of Vancouver.
Another discovery on my walk was a Dominos Pizza.
It was Monday and that meant Monday Night Football. So that evening I ordered a pizza, got some beer, and watched football. A bit of home away from home ahhhhhhhh.
