Not sure about the huge metal cross on the wall in my room.

Drove to Puebla this morning, arriving about 11.45am. The hotel we are staying in, Hotel del Portal, is in a fabulous location facing the main square in the Historical Centre.

Early breakfast, Mexican eggs, so called because it is scrambled eggs with the coloures of the Mexican flag red ,white and green, tomatoes onions and green chillies. Tasty 50 pesos.
... poles (you know the ones with the big round bulbs) and beautifully, different coloured buildings, European-looking iron terraces and burgundy awnings. And THE most commanding, opulent cathedrals. I'm serious. This place has some of the best cathedrals I've ever seen. The Notre Dames and Vaticans might actually be sweating it slightly... We walk around for a few hours, then have dinner at a cute little restaurant. I had salad (yay, vegetables!) and Mexican rice, ...
... along, a shot of tequila and some of the chips helping the process. Had a makeshift shampoo before our grand repast rendezvous.
JJ nowhere in sight for dinner and Kathleen bagging same too. Fabian decided to follow a Lonely Planet recommendation re the mole plobano from the Translator, the latter having downloaded some portion of the Lonely Planet guide on Mexico on to his camera. Yikes!
After some searching, El Mural de los Poblanos was ...
