Torreon

Today has been a pretty normal and boring day for me. It's been raining and I couldn't go out for my walkie so nothing interesting happened. Thats why I want to tell you about something in my city.

People say that if you come to Torreon and don't visit El Cristo de las Noas, its like you hadn't been here.

We don't have many turistic places here, but this is a very important one:






The must visit "Cristo de las Noas" is the 2nd biggest Christ Sanctuary in Latin America, is the image of Jesus with extended arms, symbolising protection for the inhabitants of Torreon, it is situated on the top of a hill. In this hill named "Las Noas" (means cactus plant) there is a Catholic church over the top and where you can see the entire city in eagle view.



This is a view of Torreon from the hill. As you can see we don't have many green areas (its a desertic zone) and don't have tall buildings.

Have a nice day!

Hi Lorenza,

It rained here the whole Memorial Day weekend so we didn't get to go to the country the way we planned....we aren't real happy with Mother Nature right about now.

My Aunt Annie and Aunt Leona went on a tour of Mexico years ago with a group of people from our church, St Anne's Catholic church, and it was a sightseeing trip to see all the old churchs in Mexico. They had a wonderful time...I'll ask her she saw the one in Torreon.

Keep dry.........Mona, Jacks, Toby and Bradley too!!

That's a very pretty statue of Jesus. I think your city seems very nice without all the tall buildings. My human works in the 2nd tallest building here in Omaha, and she doesn't like it! So, be glad you have nice short buildings!

Hi Lorenza

The statue is very beautiful.

We are lucky where we live because we have 5 acres to run around and lots of birds to chase, and mice too !!

Love from your friend, Hammer

We have a picture of my girl in front of a statue like that, but she says it was taken in Rio and not Mexico.

Our city is brown too, because we also live in a desert.

Hi Lorenza,

That looks like a grand statue. Mummy & Daddy always leave me at home on Sunday mornings to attend mass at the church.
Here in Singapore, it is very different fro your city. Everywhere u turn, u see tall buildings.

Love,
Reina

Wowie Zowie, is that your city? There sure are a lot of houses... kind of like California!

Luckie the Dachie said...

Hey Lorenza - Mexico sounds really exotic....Singapore doesn't have much green areas too...it's all tall buildings and it's definately not as dog friendly as other countries.
