Huamantla, Tlaxcala

'Volcan La Malinche' (La Malinche Volcano) was the sign that we read from the highway and we were left thinking that almost nobody in Mexico is named Malinche: it's taboo (Malinche was an indigenous woman who served as interpreter and advisor, among other things, to Cortez). In Huamantla we found a town with a marked Spanish legacy reflected in haciendas that look more like castles and the presence of bulls adorning walls of all sorts. The town's indigenous past was not seen, but rather tasted in a pulque (an alcoholic drink made from maguey sap) that left us with rosy cheeks.
