Puebla, Puebla

Me in the Puebla zocalo.
Over the weekend I took a trip to Puebla with two of my friends here. It is about a two hour bus ride from Mexico City, a trip that goes through some beautiful mountains and countryside.

Puebla is the capital city of the state of Puebla and is known for having a ton of churches, mole poblano, and chiles en nogada. Here are some of the things we saw:

Cathedral bordering the Zocalo.
Inside the cathedral.

Puebla's zocalo.
The Zocalo (main plaza) in Puebla is beautiful and tree filled (compared to Mexico City's stark square).

Sculpture in the Zocalo.
City Streets.
A lot of the buildings were decorated beautifully. 
Palafoxiana Library
Another beautiful church.
Selling balloons in the Zocalo.
Elena, Shelley, and me and the AMLO rally.
On Sunday morning we were able to see the presidential runner up, nicknamed AMLO, speaking. He still has no conceded his loss and they are recounting many of the votes. They announced him as the next President of Mexico. Ha.

And of course.. I had to get some chilaquiles in.
