We spent a day in Piedras Negras, Coahuila


John Reed

It is evident that Mexican roads are insecure regardless of season or timetable; however, this did not damper our Christmas spirits as we traveled from inside Mexico to the U.S.- Mexicor border: Piedras Negras, Coahuila to be exact.  

My family and I spent some time at the "Mercado" and the downtown area, specifically at the town square where we took the picture above, which was beautifully decorated.

Although we are not Catholics, kudos to the their churches since they are pieces of architectural work Mexico wide. In this particular case, the Piedras Negras Cathedral is not the exception - it is gorgeous.
I am not happy with the $3 billion dollars that the past Moreira government stole from the people of Coahuila, but they sure did pretty up Piedras Negras.  This beautiful piece of architecture stands in front of the International Bridge with the United States.

These are stores right in front of the town square, one of many that adorn this beautiful town. We only spent a day on the U.S.- Mexico border and then we got back on the highway down south.  As we traveled, we saw two Federal Police cars as two officers were inspecting a vehicle that was destroyed on the side of the road, a truck to be exact, with no passengers in it.
