San Luis Potosi Part Two


“Travel opens your heart, broadens your mind, and fills your life with stories to tell.”  Paula Bendfelt

Yes, travel does fill your life with stories, and Mexico has provided me with so many. Here are a few more.

Museo Francisco Cossio

The museum opened in 1970. This museum has had many lives. It has been a school, hotel, and cottage. It used to have orchards, a tennis court, a lake, a swimming pool and beautiful gardens.

The exhibitions change on a regular basis, and there are musical performances, so you need to check their website regularly. The museum also has courses and workshops.


Cost of entry:

Tuesday – free

General public 30 pesos

Inapam 15 pesos

Child 15 pesos

Teacher 15 pesos

Hours of operation:

Tuesday to Saturday, 11 am to 6 pm

Sunday 10 am to 2 pm

This museum is well worth the visit.



Sherlocks Coffee House and Rock Pub

Walking into this very eclectic restaurant is like walking into the past, during the Sherlock Holmes period.  It certainly doesn’t seem like a “rock pub.” I felt as if I was in England. The coffee and food were very good, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

The rock pub part is a live band from 9 pm to 1 am on weekends. Sunday mornings from 10 am to 12 pm is a soft rock band.

You can find this unique restaurant at Arista #926, Colonia Tequis. Phone 444 100 6607.


There is also an outdoor area.

You won’t be sorry to visit this restaurant. Watch carefully, and you might spot the ghost of Sherlock Holmes!

Christmas has arrived in San Luis Potosi.

San Luis Potosi pulled out all the stops to decorate el Centro, including a skating rink. The temperatures have dropped, but not enough to keep ice frozen. I can only assume that there is something underneath to keep it frozen. Watching the people having a great time, even if they couldn’t skate, was fun.  As you can see, most skaters clung to the sides and made their way around. They did not let that stop them. Obviously, you can wear whatever you want. Even a onesy.

The decorations are breathtaking. Pictures do not do it justice. The tall Christmas tree is apparently a bit shorter than the previous year. That tree was put in Tangamanga Park.

Notice the entrance to Hell. Apparently the man is a politician. This display is inside the Government building.

We had the good fortune to be shown a bit more inside the Government Palace. I would love to work in a place that has that much history.


We were told about this restaurant by our friends Jim and Karen. Mark and Paulette from The Two Travelers in Mexico (check out their vlog mentioned it as well. We were in the area the other day and decided to try it.

We were greeted by the effervescent owner, Alfredo Arroyo Carranza. I do not know how he keeps up his bubbly personality six days a week. At first glance, the restaurant looked small, but he proudly told us that he started with three tables and now has 80. We were asked to wait, it didn’t take long. As we were taken to our table in one of the back rooms, we were amazed at the size of the place. He told us he had won 3 international awards. On Saturdays, there are around 600 people wanting to eat there, so of course, there is a waiting list.

Once we were seated, he asked if we had eaten here before and when we said no, he asked if we liked mushrooms, to which we answered yes. He made a suggestion as to what he thought we would like. He stated that nothing on the menu was spicy. We are always up for a new experience, so we let him choose our meal. We were not disappointed.

Seeing the majority of tables were full, we were expecting to have a bit of a wait for our meal. Another pleasant surprise: it came quickly.

Check out his YouTube interview. It is in Spanish, but you can see his personality and energy.


From my family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas. Enjoy and be safe.
