In Montezuma's Painted Land Mounted Milkmen Make Daylight Deliveries in Jalapa No rattling bottles at 4 a. m . disturb the residents of the capital of Veracruz State. Jalapa was a thriving Indian town when Cortes and his men marched through it. In Spanish Days, Jalapa Was the "City of the Fair" Here merchandise brought back by the "Silver Fleet" from Cadiz was sold at an annual fair. Today Indian descendants trot along the steep cobbled streets peddling fruit, flowers, and locally grown coffee.
