Comment on Jogging Paths in Puebla by Giselle http://www.puebla-mexico.com/jogging-paths-in-puebla/#comment-72560 Wed, 01 Apr 2015 05:46:26 +0000 http://www.puebla-mexico.com/?p=768#comment-72560 thanks so much for the suggestion, I will be in Puebla right in the ‘long run’ for my marathon, and I’m worried about finding safe places to log I the miles, which of the parks above you suggest for safety but also access to water/restrooms which I know are difficult to get in countries like Mexico?
Cheers!

Comment on Drinking in Local History at La Pasita in Puebla by Michelle http://www.puebla-mexico.com/la-pasita-cantina-in-puebla/#comment-62379 Tue, 03 Feb 2015 16:51:47 +0000 http://www.puebla-mexico.com/?p=2029#comment-62379 Hi Rebecca. Thank you for the post. I just came back from a quick trip to Puebla & I have to say I wish I had seen much more of it. Downtown is so beautiful & relaxed.
I knew the queue at La Pasita was a good sign but felt nervous because I’m not a connoisseur when it comes to alcohol. Regardless of that, I sat down, ordered an eggnog & almond liquor, then I soaked in the cozy ambiance. I was impressed by how quickly our drinks were served regardless of the big crowd. I took a sip & was shocked once again… I honestly wanted to drink my liquor as a shot haha. Needless to say, I enjoyed every single sip of them! Too bad it’s not sold anywhere else, I should’ve bought a bottle & some eggnog haha.
Have a nice day everyone!

My husband and I relocated to the U.S. last summer, so we’re no longer living in Puebla. I believe a group of English- and Spanish-speaking expats and their loved ones still meets for a pub quiz the second Wednesday of the month, 8 p.m., at Texas Bar-B-Q restaurant near Avenida Juarez. If you go, please give everyone my regards!

Nice blog! I am a costarrican living in Mexico with my family. My husband was born in Spain but grew up in Southafrica where our two oldest kids were born. I left Costa Rica 16 years ago and as a family we have lived in Australia, Malaysia and now Mexico besides South Africa. We now have a little mexican boy!
We have lived in Mexico City for 4 years now but are thinking of moving to Puebla within the following months.
Besides being both from latin cultures, we enjoy meeting and socializing with people from other cultures as well as ours. We don´t really fit into any specific group as even within our family we have 4 nationalities but would really like to be in touch with expats living in Puebla.
I think your blog is excellent and I hope we keep in touch.
Abrazos!

Comment on Expats Create a Sense of ‘Home’ in Puebla by Sophie Alvarado http://www.puebla-mexico.com/expats-in-puebla-mexico/#comment-51085 Sat, 03 Jan 2015 21:24:22 +0000 http://www.puebla-mexico.com/?p=6650#comment-51085 Hi Rebecca,

I’m a young Brit living in Puebla, I’ve been living here for almost six months now. I’ve met some very nice people here including my current boyfriend who is fluent in English and has helped me to meet people here. I’m happy but I feel that my social life is missing something. I can understand Spanish and speak a fair bit but I feel that it’s not good enough to start working here yet so I don’t have any work friends to talk to. It’s pretty difficult to practice Spanish with your partner when you’ve gotten into the habit of English. It would be nice to have other people to socialise with and have English and Spanish chat. I hope the group is still up and running and that I can come along one day for a chat. :)

Yours sincerely,
Sophie.

I really love this drink and if you come to Pasita once, please try the “Amortizado de Naranja” another drink they also prepare. Sangre de Bruja and Sangre de Artista are very good as well.
