OUR THIRD NIGHT IN

This hotel had no heater and A/C.  Many of us asked for more blankets.

Then we had dinner there.

Another sunrise


Church in San Ignacio, Mexico

Gustave Eiffel first designed and built this church.  He later did the Eiffel Tower project in Paris.

Gustave Eiffel

Alexandre Gustave Eiffel was born in Dijon France in 1832. He graduated from the Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures, Paris in 1855 and joined a Belgian firm which specialized in railway equipment. He established an independent practice in 1864 after which he established a career as an engineer-contractor.

Eiffel was a master of elegantly constructed wrought-iron lattices, which formed the basis of his bridge constructions and led to his project for the Eiffel Tower. He was mainly recognized as an engineer and bridge builder.

Eiffel died in Paris in 1923.
