In many places in Mexico, people get dress up in costumes that seek to look like a pre-Hispanic attire. They play some music, dance and offer a photo-op for the tourists, all for some money . While they’re nowhere near a pre-Hispanic costume, they are fun to watch.
The other day, while walking around downtown Puebla, I came up with this lovely kid dressed in what seemed to be an Aztec- reminiscence costume. His face was so beautiful, with a tanned skin and sweet eyes. I thought it had to be one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen in Puebla. I took this picture so I could share it with all of you.
Don’t you agree with me? He was beautiful. He was standing in front of me just for a second, before his mom took him to do his little dance someplace else. What a great way to end my day!
