Tochimilco and Atlixco visit

Yesterday we went to see Tochimilco a small town near Atlixco (about 15 minutes away and 40 minutes from Puebla). We didn’t know they celebrate the Asuncion day and we got a good surprise seeing this catholic festivity there.

Tochimilco is a small town with colonial history, they have an aqueduct and a Franciscan ex-convent, what impressed me more was they had a pool for Indian Baptism into catholicism and in a near town there is a church with a separate building for indian listening the homily.

I posted two images in my Flickr account. I will upload more photos of Tochimilco in a¡one of my Flickr set.

You have to see the people watching the fireworks, we couldn’t stay until they display the larger one.
