Just got back from the trouts
This morning I met Panamerikaner and his friend Enrique and they both lead the way out of the city and then on to some small backroads up the hills until we got to the famous trout place . Nice open air restaurant next to a small river coming down from the Popocatepetl and that same water is where the trouts come from .

And this is what they do to the trouts

Trucha con ajo





Trucha almendrada






Mike , you see what you are missing ????

Yes! However, tomorrow morning it's hot homemade bread with fresh homemade strawberry jam, an order of picadas with green and red salsas and a lechero grande that will do the wake up trick! We'll be in the zocalo in Cordoba at the first restaurant in los portales.
Buen provecho, Julio! Que suerte!
Heading out to check that road that has been in the back of my mind all week, time to see where it goes.
Saludos to Jean Luc.

So this morning we met at a Pemex station at the entrance of the cuota from Puebla to Mexico , ready for the Malinche .
Enrique couldn't make it , because of an unexpected lunch appointment ; so it was was just Panamerikaner and me . On our way out,we rode by the VW factory where I will get a guided tour tomorrow .
It is nice just to follow an other rider who knows exactly where to go , no need of maps, gps,roadsigns...just enjoying the ride .
As we got closer to the Malinche , it came out of the clouds and looked pretty impresive . I assumed, that further up the view would get better...wrong !! Further up we got in the woods and couldn't see the peak anymore .At the end of the public road , there was a chain and a police car . So we parked the bikes and started hiking up the small forest road .The cops asked us , if we would hike up all the way to the summit (4h). We told them noway , that it was way to far for us. So they told us that the forest road would still go on for an other 5 KM and if we would help them out with some gas money, they would let us ride the bikes up, as far as we could . And so we did , but at the end of the road we were still in the middle of the woods and no view at all at the volcano.

So we just had to turn around and go back





After a nice breakfast in a small comedor, we rode down hoping for a good photo opportunity, but the volcano was gone, the clouds hadn't stopped for breakfast and beat us.

An other great day in Puebla ! In the morning I got a guided visit to the production site of VW-Mexico , thanks to Panamerikaner who set it up for me . Pretty impressive to see a place where 2500 cars are produced every day...

In the afternoon just walking around in the Centro Historico , admiring amongst other things the creativity of the people of Puebla. Anywhere else in the world , if a traffic light breaks , a traffic cop takes over until it's fixed again . Not in Puebla,that would not be colorfull enough for this city . This is how it is done here






And then an other local delight , Chile ancho stuffed with goat cheese in a tomato sauce with Chipotle and Apazote
