So back in November I went on a really cool trip to Mexico.
Since then I’ve been a little busy.
Which means that until last Thursday I had not even touched any of the pictures I took. So here are a few of my favorites so far.
Street scene in Puebla Mexico
Aguamiel extraction specialist at a working Pulque producing hacienda.
Fields of corn & maguey surrounding the hacienda with a backdrop of fantastic scenery.
My friend for the week, his real name was Speedy Gonzales but he had a big dog personality stuffed into a little dog so I re-named him Zander and would have taken him home.
View of the distant volcano out our back yard.
One of many church spires around the area.
Walkway surrounding the entry courtyard on our Hacienda tour. Fantastic arches & cobble stones.
An example of some beautiful iron-work at the Hacienda
The Maguey plant when left to itself will send up a flowering stalk, I wish we had seen one in bloom.
First entrance into the walled Hacienda. Cobblestones, brickwork, artisan woodworking & maguey plants.
View of the surrounding countryside from inside the walls of the Pulque Hacienda
Pulque is briefly stored in barrels before being delivered to various eateries & pulque bars. Corked with some sort of cane to help it breathe and not blow up in the barrels.
Surrounding scenery en route to the Pulque Hacienda. Beautiful countryside.
I believe this was the view of a street in Puebla from our first day… but it could have been Tlaxcala where we tried to catch the mystery bus.
PS. I fully intend to organize things into a more coherent post. Maybe by day, maybe by place, maybe by recipe… hard to say. 🙂
