Hello and welcome if this is your first visit or if you're a regular. (And yes, you've found Paul who wrote Cashing in on te American Dream: How to Retire at 35.)
(Art in Puebla and Oaxaca, Mexico)
Puebla is Mexico's fourth largest city and one of the oldest colonial cities in the country. Streets in the historic center bustled with activity. Not wanting to be squished by crowds, both for the pandemic and for security, we found less crowded alternate routes to visit churches, cultural centers and museums.
Everywhere we went, the folks of Puebla followed strict pandemic protocols and we happily complied.
We spent a week being tourists - a pleasant change of pace for us.
We attended free concerts, visited museums in the historic center (some more than once), saw the 'must see' intensely-beautiful-Mexican-Baroque Chapel of the Rosario in the Santo Domingo church, and wandered around the mercado 5 de Mayo. Wikipedia does an outstanding job giving an overview of Puebla: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puebla_(city)
