Cholula, the widest Mayan site, covered with foliage, high on a temple--the catholic church!
We visited the Uriate Talavera house! Beautiful hand painted pieces of dining ware, pottery, etc. since 1624 when the Spanish brought over the style. Only 7 mineral colors are used. The pieces are black or white, then baked @ 850 degrees to become red. They are glazed, cooked again, stencil designs, hand crafted; then finally painted by hand!
