Hotel Freeman 3.15.08

I had been told about a wonderful place to go & watch the sunsets called the Hotel Freeman and talked Anne & Jeff into joining us on Saturday. After all of the manipulation the previous day, Michael’s knee really hurt him so we walked as little as possible. There is a hotel down in Olas Altas called the Best Western Hotel Freeman that has a pool & observation deck on the 11th floor that has a wonderful 360 degree view of the city. We made it just in time for the sunset
& a few photos. The hotel was beautiful & the view, spectacular.

We enjoyed a drink while watching the sunset & listened to a musician that was playing
downstairs in the bar area.
After we tired of the view & atmosphere, we walked downtown to a street vendor that serves baked potatoes. Michael & I had been there before, during Carnaval, but Anne & Jeff had never been. They take baked potatoes, open them up & remove the insides, mash the potato with butter, sour cream & cheese and put it back inside, then top it with carne asada. There is cucumbers & radishes on the table and four types of salsa to try as well. Each potato is $3 and they’re wonderful!! After dinner, we went down to the Golden Zone to an outdoor bar/restaurant called Gus Gus (pronounced goose goose) where a live band was playing. The Spring Breaker’s are in town and Mazatlan is beginning to get busy so we enjoyed the show & the band, finally taking a taxi back to the boat. It was a wonderful, fun, laid back evening…

More to follow…Rene
