It's almost been a week since I arrived in Mexico and all these days have gone in adjusting the internal clock and sorting out boring things like bank account, accountancy, taxes etc., so in the free spaces I have to try as much as possible to do nice things and see my friends.
Yesterday I went to Puebla with my sister to visit a Talavera pottery factory, I think the guy -our guide- said that they are the oldest and finest of the certified factories. The producers of Talavera have to follow rules and strict norms and belong to an Association to be able to call their pieces Talavera. I think they are just allowed to use a limited amount of colours and certain designs and to follow the traditional process...
This year I haven't been able to stuff my face with my beloved Mexican food. Moctezuma's revenge is been quite hard on me this time.
Moctezuma's revenge: bad things happening to the stomach.
