Heading toward the City of Guanajato!
The Church Mexican Camping Guide declares, "Of all the colonial cities in Mexico, Guanajuato is probably the most interesting and fun to visit."

MsTioga and The Team are heading out of the City of León this morning and going easterly toward Guanajuato!

As we were traveling along the highway going out from León, Little Mavicita decided to take a pano pic of the highway for you to see. The highway has three lanes in each direction, only common around the larger cities of Mexico.

What happened to the heater core?
We did not tell you what happened to the heater core, as several Readers emailed to remind us. Since the heater core is not needed during the summer, installation has been postponed.

The hoses that connect to the water pump bypassed the heater core a few months back when the heater core began to leak.

11AM - Laundry Camped in Silao.
We have arrived in the City of Silao, and are looking for a lavanderia [laundry]. The streets around "La Burbuja" ["The Bubble"] lavanderia are too narrow for Señorita Tioga. So, we took a taxi to La Burbuja. Our laundry will be done around 3pm.

La Señorita made a Laundry Camp in the parking lot of a Soriana supermarket where we will stay until it is time to get our laundry. Across the street is "Mariscos Mares" restaurant, where they prepare wonderful looking shrimp cocktails! Yummmm!

Little Mavicito presents Mariscos "Mares"
We ordered a shrimp cocktail at Mariscos "Mares". Sitting in the shade of this outdoor restaurant in the City of Silao, Little Mavicito was overwhelmed with the wish to share all of this with you!

10PM - Moved to Nite Camp.
There is still some traffic going right passed our Camp. So, we decided to change position and make a Nite Camp where it is quiet for sleeping.

The neighborhood across the highway seemed good. The General Hospital is here. MsTioga parked next to a somewhat newer apartment neighborhood.
