Today we had another excision to the Mercado Municipal de Cholula. Wow! What a fun time that was. The market was full of fresh fruits, vegetables, butcher shops (okay yikes honestly), small mini-restaurants, spice shops, shoes, clothing, and so much more! The only thing that I am able to compare this market to is La Boquería in Barcelona.
Our guide explained that these markets are important because people from smaller towns outside of Cholula / Puebla come to sell and buy goods in the market. El Mercado is said to be the center of culture / life here in Cholula. How cool is that.
As soon as we finished at the market, we ventured outside to some street vendors. I bought some swanky souvenirs that I am excited to gift.
After exploring a bit more, we got on our bus and headed back to Puebla (the city). We had a quick meal at a popular place inside the UPAEP Cafeteria. I had a chicken sandwich and a mango smoothie. A refreshing meal after the many heavy / rich meals that I have recently had.
After lunch, we had class. This evening, we are going as a group to see Spiderman (in Spanish). It should be good! I’m excited! (: ¡Hasta luego!
