Colourful Puebla, a UNESCO Heritage Site in Mexico

When the Lens-Artists challenge was ‘Blue’ I replied to Tina’s comment by saying, “Frida Kahlo’s house is only one of coloured houses in Mexico City; this was my blue post; now I’m out looking for yellow, orange, lime green and purple challenges!”

So she has now obliged me with a challenge for ‘Colourful’.

I  was thinking of Puebla, a short distance away from Mexico City, a city that contained all those bright colours and more.

Where to start? Maybe with a yellow wall.

Pink is a colour I always associate with Mexico and it was certainly in abundance in Puebla.
