Me and Bethany love our downtown! So last Saturday we decided to take a trip down there. This was my first time to go there in more than 4 months! We walked and walked... There's so many little shops to walk around in, and so many sights to see! You can people-watch for hours! :))
Mmm! Twix for me! ;P
We decided to sit down in the middle of the zocalo and eat our ice cream.
After sitting and talking for a little while, a group of girls came up to us and asked us "You can do interview?" :) This isn't the first time that this has happened. Schools here have started giving out assignements to their students to interview foreigners, so we've had our share of random people coming up and asking us questions...
They always have their assigned list of questions that they have to ask you. The only ones I object to are "where you live", "when you going back", or "what your social security".
HAHA just kidding about that last one... We have yet to have that one asked!
Looking at this list brings back memories of going to public school here in Puebla. It's so funny to me how they do their work here-- One example is when you write a sentence you have to write the first capital letter in red, do the rest using your black pen, then end in red...
After Beth finished answering all the questions, they asked her to write a letter in English.
Haha, Bethany got in her witnessing for the day. :)))
Funny little mannequin guy... dressed in the traditional garb.
...for a woman :))
After the interview we meandered over to the Parian. This is the main souvenier place for the tourists to go to. The Parian is always full of foreigners!
I absolutely love Mexico!
Here is one of the many candy shops.
More candy... :))
One last picture before we left the Parian!
La Beth :)
A row of little titeres! Marionettes I believe they are called in English.
Oooh here's my favorite part of our trip! The art street! It's amazing to watch an artist at work.
There is so much talent on this street!
Another artist... So much detail in this painting!
Whew! We then did the long trek to the bus stop.
We were so ready to see this big beautiful bus. ;P
Well, I hope you all enjoyed this little glimpse into parts of our downtown!
Come down and visit us and we'll give you the grand tour! It's even better in person. ;)
The End! :)
