I was down at the docks at dawn and took some pictures of the event which appear on my web site: www.johntoddjr.com which are in the Photographs section. It was impressive to see what looked like a 10 story building floating into the Veracruz harbor at dawn!
For some friends, I set up a page on a self guided Walking Tour of Downtown Veracruz that takes about 3 hours along with a little map that you might want to print out ahead of time. There´s also a menu of other things to do.
If you are planning a trip to Veracruz, I hope my web site will help give you some ideas about what´s here. If you have been to Veracruz, I hope you´ll enjoy the photos.
