On a recent trip to Mexico which included travelling through central and southern Mexico, I felt completely blown away by the amount of colors I saw not just in the nature, but in the cities and towns too. Being from Philadelphia, I’ve grown up accustomed to the bland grays and whites of most Philly/NYC buildings. No one would ever paint their house pink or orange, but in Mexico the cities explode with such colour.
The first city that caught my eye was Puebla. It seemed like every other building was either bright red or bright blue.
The streets were bustling with college students but the vivid colors seemed to bring even more life to the city. Some say the more sun a city gets, the happier its people. I’d bet that you would be able to bump up that happiness level even further thanks to the more colorful buildings in Puebla.
