In Pictures: Xalapa, Veracruz

Xalapa, or Jalapa, is a city of several hundred thousand and the seat of government of the State of Veracruz.  At 4000′ above sea level, Xalapa doesn’t have the obscene heat of many cities along the Gulf of Mexico, but it still has a green, lush feel and a photogenic hillside setting.  Xalapan culture runs strong, with several universities, a definitive regional cuisine, and popular venues for live, local music.

This is the first of two posts pictures of Xalapa… these happen to be taken from the zocalo, or adjacent buildings.
