Visit Day 5: Puebla

Everyone was very worn out from our past two days of hiking up pyramids and walking all over Mexico City, so we opted for the least intensive day trip, a drive through the mountains to Puebla followed by a Turibus tour of Puebla. No walking required!

We had a quick breakfast then were into the car for the day's adventure. The volcano was blowing up a little bit today, so we couldn't see much besides smoke on the way. Once we go to Puebla, it was beautiful and sunny as always! We timed is just right that we were able to grab cash, coffee and then hop on the bus. This was my second time on the Puebla Turibus, and it seemed like half the route was under construction which led to some very "creative" driving by the bus driver. After much backing up and U-turning, we arrived safely back at the zocalo and sat down for a delicious lunch of Mega Cemitas - the official sandwich of Puebla.

We toured a few churches, bought Talavera pottery in El Parián market, and then headed home. Traffic was horrible as usual, and we got in late. Autumn and I decided to go pick up pizzas from 50 Friends and we spent a relaxed evening at home.
