Comments: From Xalapa to Puebla City to Tehuacán


In the morning I checked for the last time my gear: portable version of the UV scorpion detector, 6 boxes to contain and transport scorpions safely, Dell Axim X51v (PDA), Pandora's Star (book), and of course my digital camera, a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC S600. All was packed in a safe way inside my, or better Esme's backpack, because it was the lighter one. I took her backpack which contained mostly our clothes and we left the house and took the first bus to the central bus station of Xalapa (CAXA).

Hi John,

nice to see you visited Puebla, the city where I'll move from Switzerland by the end of this year to join mi beloved Lupita. I scour as you the states of Pueba, Veracruz y Oaxaca to find minerals or fossils.

Many places you visited I have visited too, and this country ever enchants and amazes me.

When I come, I will invite you to hike with us some nice places around Puebla and stay at our casita, "Mi casa es tu casa" !

Thank you to share your experiences !

Hi Maurizio,

I look forward to meet you and am certainly interested in looking around for fossils and minerals which I used to collect in the past.

I've found some fossils near to Tenextepec but didn't take any with me. I might have done so if I had some equipment with me.
