About Me

My photo

I´m Michelle and I am traveling in Latin America. I have always wanted to travel here and I finally left my home in Boston, MA in July 2013. I have been traveling since then, working here and there and continuously realizing that the world is filled with opportunities for exploration. I hope to travel for a long time but I always find a cozy place to stay for some time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions I am more than happy to take you up on them. Live long, travel far, love often.

Cholula, Puebla: MEXICO, I have returned.

After spending a good two weeks in Mexico City I finally left to continue my Central American journey. I believe I could have spent even more time in D.F. But it was time to go. We journeyed two hours south to Puebla. We visited Cholula, a place that I had been to before in my younger years. We saw some more ruins and ate mole poblano-a dish made with a sauce that is made from chocolate. Very good!

I see the light!
Ruins of pyramids, and on top a church. There are 365 churches in Cholula-Does that mean there are many sinners?
The pyramids in Cholula claim to be the biggest in the world.

The T desighn is unique to the pyramids of Cholula.
Let's climb!

People playing conk shells and flutes, getting in touch with their prehispanic traditions.
