Good job. I've been meaning to visit Tlaxcala for years. It sounds like a pleasant town with quite a history.

 

 

thank you.  Probably my favourite discovery of last trip.  Was there during Carnival which was special, but even more as i probably was the only gringo, other than a few that came on a day trip from capital, so really nice Mexican experience...

 

Nice centre, small and compact easy to explore and without the over presence of the expat influence in place like San Miguel de Allende.  hoping to get back next time and explore a bit more around....

That's a tough question. Mexico is a treasure trove and a big country. If you liked Tlaxcala, you would probably enjoy the city of Puebla as well. Have you been there?

only a few days on way to Tlaxcala.   For sure spending more time next time.  Sounds like a good stay to explore it and return to Tlaxcala.

I first visited Puebla over 30 years ago. I went back in 2010, and couldn't believe how much it had grown. It's the third largest city in Mexico now, I believe. Should I blame the Pope? I'd better not. 😬

hard to believe that it's 6 times bigger than Oaxaca..   I found the centre manageable enough so it didn't feel that big, but on bus i does sprawl for a long time.

Yes, Puebla was a more pleasant place to explore when I first went there. As you say, though, the colonial centre is manageable (on weekdays anyway). Don't know if you noticed, but quite a few French tourists go there (from France), probably because of the historical French connection -- the Battle of Puebla and all that. Not many Americanos and Canadianos make it south of Mexico City.

did see a couple a French groups, didn't know that was the reason. like anything you revisit 30 years later, it is always weird.  I have same vibe with New Zealand, still like it but it isn't what made me love it the first time.

French tourists can be easy to spot -- they often have a certain "Je ne sais crois." 😎

 

Chiapas is a wild and wonderful state to explore if you haven't been. It's a lot like Guatemala, one of my favourite places.

Two different clients and together the money is not enough for a BigMac meal.

 

EDO,

 

Hope you were not wearing a "Bush Jacket" inside of MacDonald's. ........

that's an idea.  Only stopped in the typical San Cristobal on way to Guatemala.  Need to go explore.  I really loved Guatemala also.

Web use. The reading glasses cost £2 and I still use them for close-up work - when nobody's looking.

 

It's not too often you get a fee that would pay for the subject of the image! (Just?)

True - it certainly paid for the glasses, if not the book (it's a hardback)
