TravelPod Member ReviewsEl Alquimista Oaxaca
Non seulement El Alquimista offre la location de Casitas vraiment superbe, hors de mon budget de deux mois, mais idéal, pour un cours séjour,
le restaurant est l'un des meilleurs de Zipolite, après La Providencia.
Pour les viandes et les poissons.
Le vin au verre est excellent.
Un must, le cocktail La Josephina !

... of Oaxaca starting with the Cathedral of Oaxaca for more baroque style and stained glass. Then off to Mercado Benito Juarez and Mercado 20 de Noviembre for some Chapulines (grasshoppers), chocolate coffee beans and Tamarindo sweets. On a sugar high, we then went to La Casa Mezcal to have our first taste of the infamous Mexican spirit! Not for the weak hearted! Already slightly tipsy, next stop was Mayordomo, the Willy Wonka of Oaxaca where we saw the ...
... lovers. Few if any of them live alone. They still live at home with their families, likely sharing rooms with multiple siblings. They really have no private places of their own to escape to. And anyway, this is how everybody else enjoys their lives and love, so no one looks askance at this at all!
There's not much else to say, really. Enjoy the photos!

Being my last day in Oaxaca I didn't have any plans apart from wanting to get some postcards & book my bus ticket to San Cristobal. At breakfast I told Paddy I was heading to San Cristobal, he was still indecisive about where he wanted to go. So he decided to come to the bus station and decide when he got there. The bus station was about a 10 minute walk. I managed to get a ticket on the night bus at 2000, paddy ended up flipping a coin between San Cristobal & puerto Escondido. ...
... The first few kilometers were spent trying to sleep in the tiny, cramped bus, which proved difficult.
After about an hour of travel it became even harder as we flew down a highway, started swerving all over the road and as we finally came to a stop a tire blows and we sink heavily to one side, everybody out of the van!
Of course our van has no jack or equipment to fix the issue so the other van doubles back to save the day, or so we thought.
