|New Braves Hats!|
About 20 minutes into the trip (it normally takes about 20 minutes by car to get to church), Kris and I both realized that we were not anywhere near the church. We noticed that we were actually heading out of town to another community about 30 minutes outside of Puebla. The driver asked Kris again where we were heading and at this point he told us that the bus was actually NOT going anywhere near our church. We're not sure where the breakdown in the communication happened, but, nonetheless, we were not going in the right direction. So, we decided to change our plans and stay on the bus. We ended up getting off near a big outdoor Sunday market, buying some fresh fruits and veggies and hot tortillas, and then watching a parade complete with marching bands and giant paper mache puppet-like characters (and of course my camera battery was dead). Kris and Kieran found Atlanta Braves baseball hats and Elyse got a pink Nike hat for about $7 total. On our way home, we stopped at an Italian community (yep, right here in Mexico) known for their cheese making and ate a delicious thin crust pizza for lunch.

|P.S. Did I mention we managed to lose two wheels off Elyse's stroller?!? I think we may need to upgrade to the all-terrain version!|
