Anyway, bright and early on Monday morning the family rented a car and we embarked on a five day road trip with Eduardo's mom and sister. Since Eduardo and I are used to traveling mostly on the "Libre", or free road, this would be a new experience because we will be taking the "Cuota" or toll road. First stop, Puebla.
This is my second trip to Puebla, and let me just say here and now that Puebla is all about the eating. The food is absolutely delicious. There is a street devoted entirely to sweets.
|Look closely. In this shop window the bees are enjoying the candy as much as the humans!|
|I haven't tried these yet but I bet they are delicious.|
|Yep, busted! Can't resist the candy.|

|The entire narthex of the church is decorated in Milagros, or Mexican Folk Charms.|
|The gold in this Spanish Baroque church literally took my breathe away.|
Those of you who follow my blog will remember that it was in Las Vigas that Eduardo and I traveled to the top of the mountain with Pepe, the fruit and vegetable vendor. You can refresh your memory and read about that adventure here. We were very fortunate to meet these hardworking, caring people again on this trip,

|Now that's a lot of tortillas!|
Back on the road, it was a picturesque drive to our next stop, Naolinco.
|Obligatory cow photo. I love cows!|

|My zillionth Lechero of the trip. Hehe.|
|I am obsessed with these floatie vendors on the beach.|

On a mission to find a restaurant the family had enjoyed some years back, we also made a side trip to Boca Del Rio where we had some delicious seafood.
