Atlixco


View Mexico (Mainland II) on divatmotoros's travel map.

About 30 minutes from Cholula there is another small town with a very similar temple on a hill which we wanted to check for long. This Sunday the idea came from a classmate of our son and we met their lovely family at Atlixco.

We walked a bit in the center, at the Zocale which is a lush green park with a lot of articrafts on sale and a temple. A few years ago major earthquake caused some damage to the church and we heard that one of the bells even dropped to the ground.

After the walk we visited a very nice restaurant nearby called Topolino and spent around 3 hours there, kids playing and we adults talking. Finally we visited a large garden center checking the plants for sale. Funnily the pricing works exactly the inverse way of Hungary: what is cheap there is very expensive here and the other way around.

So all in all we met a very nice family and it is a pity we did not organise this meeting earlier as in two weeks we will be on our way South. However in February we might meet again once we return to Pueble!
