inside the temple of sto. domingo is a small, intricately adorned chapel covered entirely in 24K gold leaf. the temple was started in 1550 but construction of the chapel wasn't started until a hundred years later. the capilla, which was the first chapel in mexico dedicated to the blessed virgin of the rosary, was finally finished in 1690.
you won't find many places like this in the world. if you are in puebla, you have to come here!
ps. bring your sunglasses!
Greg arranged for some Mariachies to perform a surprise serenade for Kika. They sang traditional Mexican love songs. Pretty impressive, there were 12 musicians as well as El Osso (The Bear). A well received gesture I must say.
Puebla is well known for it's Mole. The most common Mole is a sauce made from Chilies, nuts, and Coco. Although; There are many other types as seen in this picture. One of my favorite dishes is Mole Pollo. The smooth texture, combination of spices with the subtle sweetness is a very unique flavor.
As previously mentioned, Pasita is a Raisin liquor. I did not taste the Rompope, but Kika said it was comparable to Egg Nog in the US.
I must go back and try some.
The prices on the fruits and vegetables was unbelievable. These huge Papaya’s were 10 pesos for two or about .50 cents a piece.
Carlos took us to a Famous Pasita bar. Pasita is a liquor made from raisins. It is served in a shot glass with a small cube of cheese. Yummm
Favorite pass time. Sitting on the Square enjoying a cerveza with friends. Greg, Wife Kika and Kika' s Father Carlos.
