Barrio del Artista

Puebla is not a loud city - it's full of colonial charm and the murmured words of people chatting at cafes and restaurants. The Barrio del Artista is kind of like a co-op of artists' studios where you can look at artists at work or join some kids at a table to paint. Someone once told me that being an artist in Mexico is very well respected. People accept that you probably won't make too much money, but that you have found a medium to express yourself through. Wouldn't it be nice to be retired and be greeted by these smiling buildings every morning before you enter your studio?
