Back to Puebla though:
It is the rainy season, and the weather is even stronger in Puebla than where I live. So, the panoramas and the views of the volcanoes are not great. Even with the clouds, Popo wasÂ amazinglyÂ striking in person. The pictures don’t do it justice. It was the perfect backdrop as we went shopping for Pueblan Talavera pottery. I found a beautiful serving plate. I’m even happier with it at home than I was in the store.
The other main even for the weekend occurred as we were walking down the Cholula pyramid. We spied 4 men in traditional costume atop a pole in the middle of a little square. They proceeded to essentially dive backwards off of the pole and spin around the pole via ropes attached to the legs and feet as they unwound like a maypole. The pictures explain the process better than the written description. I’m still investigating what this was all about, but it was a neat little show to stumble upon.
