Digressions of a Traveling Housewife.

Puebla, Puebla, Mexico
I feel at home in the Centro Historico, and I feel very, very... Tall.
Seriously, I´ve seen several people of various ages who don´t come up to my elbow.
You think I´m kidding? The waitress who served us (a very tasty) breakfast this morning was no taller than I was sitting down.
The indios, they´re just adorable.
I spent the weekend touring around with family. Uncle Gus had us over on Saturday, where we got to see two of his sons, their wives, and one baby. The baby was so cute... right up until he pooped on me and my favorite dress. Poor kid has had very bad stomach ailments.
I´m going to stop adoring other people´s babies. It gets me nothing but trouble.
Sunday, Gus took us touring Cholula, which has been absorbed by Puebla. We saw the Cholula Pyramid, which has been partially excavated, and the Cathedral de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios, which the Spaniards built right on top of the ancient Choluteca pyramid.
Then it was off to Tia Salme`s new house for a lunch of Lebanese food. Mmmm.
Today we toured around the Centro Historico, and did our shopping.
Tomorrow, home, and more details then!
