I plan to travel to Puebla in November, over thanksgiving and was looking for information on cooking schools, there was one mentioned in the New York Times a while back but I dont have the article anymore.
My original trip was to Oxaca for the food of the gods festival in October but the place seems to have a lot of trouble these days. The New York times article on this was very poignant on the issue! Its really a shame about the violence, hope the contentous issue is resolved to the satisfaction of all soon, id hate a beautiful place like that to go to pieces!
This brings me to my other question, should I fear for my safety in a city like Peubla and Veracruz that I plan to visit after peubla. I know about the petty crime stuff to be careful of like pickpockets etc and how to avoid that, but should I be concerned about violent crime? and other violence in general related to the contested election.
Thanks for any advice, any other information you think that would be useful about planning the trip is also welcome.
