About two hours east of Mexico City is Tlaxcala, Mexico’s tiniest state, and its capital goes by the same name. We took the bus there (via ATAH bus company, which leaves from the TAPO bus station on the east side of the city) and stayed at the Hotel Alifer, which is pretty basic but has a nice view of the city.
The view inside the Museo de Tlaxcala.
We climb the stairs to a church on a hill (seems like every town in Mexico has a church on a hill).
Brendan enjoys the view from the top.
A traditional dancer's cape at the folk art museum.
I try pulque for the first time (more on that later in the week!)
We danced the cumbia to a Nortena band (Banda Maguey!) in the centro. As you can see, the town is all dressed up -- tomorrow is Independence Day.
