We arrived in Puebla a couple of days before Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican national holiday, celebrating the triumph of the battle of Puebla where a small number of Mexican forces defeated a much bigger french army.

As a result the city was really busy and all sorts of things were going on including protests and marches accompanied by a massive police presence. Still this did not really stop us exploring the city. We checked out the candies on offer on Sweet Street, went to the artisan markets had churros from a very busy / popular churros cafe and ate in a really nice if not a little odd restaurant.
