After leaving Taxco i arrive in Puebla with Claudio (Italy). He is a novelist and trying to finish another book on his travels.

A little about Puebla
East of the capital, a fast road climbs steeply, with glorious views of the snowy heights of Popocatépetl and Ixtaccíhuatl, to PUEBLA. Little more than an hour on the bus from Mexico City, this is the republic's fifth largest city after Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Tijuana. This is as historic a city as any in Mexico, and certainly in the centre there's a remarkable concentration of interest - a fabulous cathedral, a "hidden" convent, museums and colonial mansions - while the mountainous country round about is in places startlingly beautiful. Nevertheless, Puebla is unlikely to tempt you into staying particularly long and in a couple of leisurely days (or one packed day) you can see the best of the city and nearby Cholula.

Not a very big city and not much to see here so i cram it all in in one day and go out for a beer on my own to a bar to watch Mexico V Portugal in the Under 20 world cup.

there is a big gay scene here in Puebla and after walking by a bar called ´the rainbow bar´ i get some wolf whistles and kisses from all the local boys. I knew my t-shirt was too tight but its satisfiying to be lusted after. ha

I watch the game for 10 mins and am invited to sit with 4 Mexican girls and have a few beers. We drink some beers and then drive around Puebla for a while in Ester´s car. These girls are crazy and great fun.  We all go back to stay in Esters and the following day i leave for Oaxaca.

You are wrong about that in Puebla you have not so much to do, more than a couple of days. Puebla has over 20 museums, more than 100 churches, two camp golf, lots of bars, a wide nigth life, also a would say about 20 teathers, two places for more than 50000 people to saty in a music concert. Cholula with its piramid, museum, etc. You should got a good tourist guide to meet well Puebla.
