The arctic vortex finally got to us.
So, my wife and I packed up and took off to Mexico City for 10 days.
Warmth is not over rated, it's a good thing.
I've always loved Mexico. Crossing that border for me is like flipping a psychological switch. Freedom, happiness, boom, done!
I've been to Mexico City on numerous occasions in the last 10 years. The history of the city is fascinating. One of the most advanced pre-hispanic civilizations in the Western Hemisphere, brought to their knees and subjugated by a handful of avaricious and ruthless Spanish gold seekers. Crazy!
One of the most most populace cities on the planet, there's never a reason to be bored. Though this time we decided to take a side trip to the city of Puebla.
A two hour bus trip later we were in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Puebla.
Puebla is known for a number of things, it's cuisine, it's architecture and Talavera tile, but I found something equally intriguing.
Puebla is a city of fountains. Everywhere you go, you see them and in numerous styles from Nuevo Spanish Colonial to Modern to just simple singular streams of water pumping up out of the sidewalk.
