We left early in morning in order to enjoy the day to the fullest. Althought we were still really tired we arrived at 10:00 in the historical city (UNESCO) of Puebla. We arrived at the youth hostel and we had a nice little breakfast. During the breakfast Tere received a text message from her aunt telling her to call A.S.A.P to home. After the phonecall Tere told me she had to go back to Cuernavaca, because there were some complication after the operation of one of her aunts.
Due to all the circumstances I still enjoyed the stroll I had in Puebla. Puebla is a very old city (but appears very new because many things have been reconstructed in the previous years. Also the city is part of UNESCO which give it the staus it deserves. The town is full of beautiful churches, parks and musuems and too many to visted them all in one day. A good alternative for seeing most of them in one day is the turibus. You get on the Turibus at the central square and during 1:30 hour you will see the most beautifull sights of the town.
Outside again I was getting hungry and ate some pizza at the Italian. It was delicious. Afterwards I went to see a Mexican Aztec dance. If I understood it correctly it was about a priest Quetzalcoatl (the moon), Huizilopochtli (the sun) and the 4 womens performing some kind of special ritual. I couldn´t understand everything, because I though that some things that were said were in Aztecs, But this dance was performed because it was the beginning of the Applefestival, because apples are very important in this region.
Well I´m off again, To see the rest of the city and enjoy the Applefestival, Toedellsss
