Oaxaca, Mexico

One of my favorite things about Oaxaca is the exuberance of the town square (Zocalo).  When I visited, it was Christmas time and during the day I explored the sites with two friends.  Most evenings, they would drop me off at my hotel and I would head for the Zocalo, spending several hours watching parades, musicians, street performers and visiting with the people.  I was often amazed I was walking around, by myself, at midnight, with no doubt about my safety.  I don’t know what my friends did in the evenings, but they were always surprised when I wanted to sleep late in the mornings!

Besides the Zocalo, I loved the local markets and the colors!  Oh! and the Mezcal!  I yearn to go back as soon as possible!
