Mexico’s Volcanoes: Team Enjoys Rest in Puebla

Its not just about climbing mountains. Mountain adventures, especially international adventures, provide an opportunity to experience the whole enchilada. Seeing that we are in Mexico...no pun intended. And speaking of enchiladas and Mexico…today the team spent the day enjoying the local culture of Puebla.

Everyone made the summit of Ixta yesterday. And everyone deserved a great day of rest, which mainly included enjoying the authentic cuisine of Puebla. I always said, “you’ve never eaten Mexican food, until you’ve eaten in Puebla”.

For breakfast we enjoyed scrambled eggs covered in mole sauce. For lunch we devoured tacos pastor. And now, we are preparing for dinner at one of Puebla’s famous restaurants, where we will sample all of the mole sauces that have made this region famous.

No, it’s not all about climbing. However, tomorrow the team is looking forward to our next mountaineering objective… Pico de Orizaba.

Stay tuned…
