A very long bus ride from Mexico city to Veracruz, probably 6 or 7 hours! We drove through hills and what we thought was a morning mist was in fact smoke, not from a nearby fire but from the pollution, especially from the smoke that old cars engine’s make.
By the time we got to Veracruz, a friend managed to get us a good cheap hotel to stay in while staying there, she got us a hotel a block away from the city central in an amazing price, I think it was around 50 bucks.
The town was Magnificient, it screamed “Spanish heritage” in every corner we ever went to. Finally, I was able to see a place that is less of a United States-wanna-be and is holding tight to its heritages.
A view from our hotel!
The last picture with the palm trees is the town central and the cathedral is Parroquia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús.
Yeah, Just me waiting for other people to move to this picture..
Outside of the iglesia was the independencia park where they had a statue of the leader who fought for Veracruz not to get occupied by the United States.
There were many food carts outside in the park, not like NYC gyro carts but like sunset park, Brooklyn’s Mexican carts; ice cream, mangos con chile, cotton candy, fruits, etc
of course, we had to try the mangos con chile!
We had to try the hand-made ice cream from natural ingredients! (tasted like heavan.. I want one now so bad 🙁 )
Mine was chocolate and nuts
The park at night was nothing short of magical!
With some pina colada (Non-alcoholic of course)
The houses were like a scene from a fairytale movie!
and of course, we tried the best tacos in town!
before our magical two days in Cordoba ended and had to get on that long bus ride again, but this time to Oaxaca.
