I forgot to turn off my alarm, so it rang at 5 o´clock like yesterday. Shit happens! Thanks god I could fall asleep again and I finally woke up at 11 o´clock. I had missed the breakfast in the hostel, but really -I didn´t care. It was already 1pm when I went downstairs and so I had a breakfast/lunch today. Chicken with mole.
After I visited the Cathedral. As I´ve already been here two times before, I really didn´t feel like doing any more of sightseeing.
Puebla is a big city and there are a lot of things going on. Even if you are just sitting around in a cafe or restaurant there´s always somebody coming up to you trying to sell you something or asking for money.
I decided to stay here tomorrow and on better ride all the way to Mexico city on sunday in one stretch only. So these last 150km to Mexico City will be the last section of my tour.
The internet doesn´t work inside my room so when I came back to the hostel I needed to sit in the lobby to do the journal and upload the images. I made myself comfortable, ordered some coffee and like in the advertising of Nike just did it.
Afterwards I took a small walk around the area and the zocalo, then came back to the hotel. l sat down in the attached restaurant and ordered another small meal.
When I was asking the waiter for a tequila he told me that in the hotel they don´t sell tequila, but he offerd me to share a drink from his private bottle. Ok, how nice I thought, and in the end I took two. As he couldn´t put them on the official bill, I asked him how much they were, and he just told me: “Give me whatever you want to give me”. Wow, I think this is a very nice attitude. Only happens to you in few places.
I went up to my room and relaxed a little bit by watching TV. Later in the evening I went to have dinner near the zocalo and just watched mexican life go by. Felt good.
