This post will cover the best experience I have had in Mexico thus far – the palace of Cacaxtla (pronounced cuh-cosh-luh)!

First, we stopped by the site museum to get some background information.

Then we headed outside and toward the palace, passing smaller pyramids along the way.

The palace with me for a crude size reference (I’m standing quite a bit in front of it).
A look at the interior of the palace...
Here are a couple pictures of the most famous mural in the palace! It is amazingly elaborate and remarkably well preserved.

A couple other murals…

handmade quesadillas with flor de calabasas (squash flowers) and nopales (part of a cactus).
Before we left, we had lunch outside the site. I had handmade quesadillas with flor de calabasas (squash flowers) and nopales (part of a cactus).

That’s it for now! We are supposed to visit Teotihuacan next Sunday, but I hope to get another post up before then to catch you up on more recent stuff.

Thanks for reading! -Brianna
