... the busy streets, Stuie bought a gorgeous hand woven clutch from a beautiful Mayan lady, who sits for hours making bags, puses and all sorts of items weaving the straw like material into the most amazing patterns and shapes.

... with 2 different fillings: cheese and minced chicken.

Now, we had been to a cooking class down here on a previous trip -- a foodie would have to be crazy to come to Oaxaca and not take advantage of this opportunity -- but that was in a more formal setting, in the well-known commercial cooking school Seasons ...

... from salts, ashes, flowers, and dead bugs to change the colors of the sheep wool. After the colors are ready, the wool is made into rugs or clothing: watch the video! We had a bit of time to look around the shop to see if there was anything we wanted to buy, I found a beautiful yellow table cloth, and asked the owner how much it was, he said 225 pesos.

... the most colorful celebrations in all of the Americas. Second, I would have paid a pretty peso for what I watched, heard and felt for the 3 hours they performed. And third of all, throughout the entire show they were throwing gifts out in to the crowd; sombreros, woven baskets and fans, food, coffee packets, and many other artisan products provided by each dance group.

prawns prawns and more prawns later, we started it as a quiz initially, the

    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 !
