My Minimalist Summer 2017: Mexico City & Puebla (Video)
This was my second time visiting Mexico City. The purpose of my second visit to Mexico was to check out potential locations to live. It was really just a pit stop, but my friend Lani was visiting Mexico for the first time, so we did some of the touristy stuff. Lani's flight was delayed and she did not arrive until the second day, so the first day I went to visit Elyse of Keen & Ready, a black expat who has been living in the city for over a year now. Elyse was actually the person who informed me about black folks living in Orizaba.
The morning after Lani arrived, we went downtown to the zocalo and visited the National Palace, Cathedral, Templo Mayor, and Palacio de Bellas Artes. That evening we left for Puebla. This was my first time here and I really enjoyed the city except for the cold and rain. The churches were beautiful and the outdoor market was nice to walk through. We also visited the ruins of Cholula, which is a smaller city about 30 minutes outside of Puebla.
Lani left early to go back to Mexico City and check out some other attractions before flying back to the States and I chilled in Puebla for a couple more days before heading to Veracruz. Check out the video below.
