The sky was clear and so we had a great view of the two big mountains around Mexico City. The first we saw was IztaccÃhuatl (Paddy will tell you to pronounce like "It's a sea wattle!" and then he will succumb to laughing so hard he can't breathe. I don't know why...) Here is more on it via Wikipedia
As we drove along, Popocatepetl came into a view. Beautiful active volcano. There was a small plume of smoke coming out of it. Here is more info from the Wikipedia site.
When we got into Puebla we checked into our hotel -- GUESS WHICH ONE?!!? That's right, the Camino Real Puebla. It was quite different from the one in Mexico. Look:
There is a lot of god here too. Someone said 365 churches, one for every day. Seemed true as there were churches every where you turned. This reminded me of
the town of Ohrid in Macedonia. They have 365 churches as well.
