A few weeks back we took a trip to Heroic Puebla de Zaragoza. This was one of the first cities founded by the Spanish in 1531 that was not built on top of ruins of local civilizations. When visiting this city it is apparent that it was a European planned city because the streets are square, they are not set a odd angles with strange intersections but laid out in a grid formation.
along one of the store fronts in front of the Zocalo (city center or downtown) is a bronze model of the city, this was unexpected for me.
This is a very interesting sculpture. It is a cylinder with half moons on each side and it is sculpted like leaves a trees.
The Drive from Mexico City to Pueble is one of the most beautiful drives I have ever taken. It was mountainous and green and spectacular, unfortunately or is a narrow highway without a shoulder going up or down the mountain so I was unable to get many photos of the mountains, but I managed a few of the volcano. The highway between Mexico City and Puebla bass next to volcano Popocatepetl and volcano Iztaccíhuatl and these are beautiful indeed.
