Visiting Puebla without seeing the Great Pyramid of Cholula? Only not me!
Unfortunately an excursion to Cholula wasn’t included in our tour. I knew it from the very beginning but hoped to convince our guide and other tourists to go to Cholula after visiting Puebla to see the largest pyramid in the World. But I failed, the guide told we wouldn't have enough time – only to have a lunch before going to Oaxaca. I decided to stay hungry and go to Cholula alone. I was afraid to be late but I risked.

The distance was about 10 km. I took a taxi. It took me 20 minutes to get to the Pyramid. I spent 20 minutes to watch the site when a taxi was waiting for me. It took me 20 minutes to come back to the Zocalo of Puebla and I was in time to join to a group which was gathering after the lunch.
How happy I was – my dream to see the Greatest Pyramid of the World came true!

You can watch my 2 min 44 sec Video Puebla-Cholula-Puebla out of my Youtube channel.

    I admire your determination to see the

    That was a good decision you made! I would also skip lunch to be able to see a great place of interest that's on my wish list.

    Good that you made it there alone. The pyramid is impressive! And .. good that you made it back to your group. But they would have waited for you in case traffic jams or so?
    Fantastic panorama views, btw. and I love that bright orange colour of the church.
