Dec, 01,  2013
Traveled from Queretano to Chulula.
It is nice to start traveling sunday morning as there is little traffic.  We wanted to take the Ruta Alta around Mexico City but Fiona " ourGPS" send us in the wrong direction so we ended up in the busy Mexico City traffic, to top it off lots of quotas "toll".
We did have clear sky's and could see both volcanoes very well. We were at an altitude of 11,500 feet. Went to visit the pyramids and as it is sunday there was fiesta in town. 
We were the only ones in the campground, no showers, dirty toilets, no internet and no water hookup and they wanted to charge 250 pesos, we paid 200 pesos but did not stay two nights as planned and drove to Puebla in the morning.  Visited the cultural center and the plaza was decorated for christmas. We did not stay in Puebla but at night the lights must be wonderful.
Left Puebla and drove to the volcano  Popocatepetl, over a dirt road to an altitude of over 12,000 feet, the camper and we got a good shaking.spent the night in Izucar de Matamoros at a new Pemex, with showers and all.
 Hugs to all
Norbert and Greti

  1. Silly GPS's always wanting to show us a good time in the MIDDLE of the city we don't want to visit. Still we let them back into our lives because we just can't live without them anymore.
