We decided to go the back way to Puebla.Well this was one of our most difficult days since the Dempster.

It took 9 1/2 hours to go 450 km. The first 4 hours were over curvy mountain roads thru small villages with hundreds of topes.

The last 180 km included 50 km of road that was almost all potholes, a long stretch thru an industrial zone with heavy truck traffic and a huge amount of oil on the road, and the rest at dusk in traffic with the uber aggressive Puebla drivers.

We were greeted at the hotel by a fellow Canadian traveller who directed us to a local Cuban bar where we enjoyed food, drink, and a local musician. Puebla has I think has the nicest Cathedral I have seen in Mexico as well as a very nice Zocalo or central square.
