A quick update of our next stop - the beautiful, colourful town of Puebla. We had some bad weather at the start with lots of rain but by the end we had beautiful sunshine. The town is filled with lots of old buildings, many churches, cobblestone streets and a snow capped mountain to complete the scene.

We actually didn't do much during our stay here. Nothing opened until 10:30am so we had lovely sleep ins and lazy mornings followed by brunch, walks through the city and then finished the day with some amazing tacos. We were also staying near the best churreria in town and developed a naughty churro habit. The line up at this place was usually 10 people deep and taking up most of the footpath.

As you'll remember from the last post we were also making a visit to Cholula and the largest pyramid. Turns out there is not much of the pyramid that is visible due to it being overgrown and built upon but it was still interesting none the less. We took the walk to the top of the pyramid where a church now stands, then we took a walk around the ruins and down underneath through the tunnels.

The town of Cholula is quite pretty too; smaller than Puebla but equally as gorgeous. We took a walk through there after our visit to the pyramid and had some amazing lemon gelato.

And that's about it for now. We're all well and looking forward to our next stop, Oaxaca.
