El Sol de Puebla


  1. Being a cop in Mex is high risk - high reward, so there is no surprise here. I'd say that by looking at the high murder it is possible to estimate how lucrative it really is to be a cop.

  2. Aim for the stars Puebla, you got this!

    1. Is that you kathi? I think so with the weird comments

  3. 9:07 aim the billion dollar lights left behind by pseudo-governor Rafael Moreno Valle "La Princesa de Apisco" to the stars, but a peeping Tom radiotelescope could do better.

  4. 3 years ago, decided to walk 5 miles from north south Pueblo to get the feel of the city. Thanks to the mother/child that patched my jeans/shirt. Passing through avenues, comes the crowded streets complete with the naked, fat prostitute women waiting for a dollar, scams galore, then the square and further south the quiet, tense .. . . take it as you see
