Puebla, Mexico. fifth installment

our hotel lobby! in Puebla
We spent 6 days in Mexico City, then took a very comfortable bus to Puebla (just two hours away.) We stayed in Puebla 4 days, and then flew home.

Compared to Mexico City's 21 million people, Puebla at 1.5 million seems small. We stayed in the historic center of town and were able to walk to many sites, including the zocalo and cathedral.

We had a wonderful time! Lots of great artistic inspiration, along with history and just plan fun. Mexico's people were incredible friendly everywhere we went, and seemed happy that we were visiting their country.
