Great place although poorly placed dorm rooms

This is a good hostel apart from the dorms. The kitchen and breakfast area is right outside them. I was woken up my a large group of mostly young Mexicans, quite early. When I got up there were still five people trying to sleep in my dorm, a fact I mentioned in passing the noisy Mexicans. It made no difference. I had to walk away otherwise I would have gone totally loco. I told the owner she should say something because it would not be so polite what I had to say to them. It's not the hostel's fault if ignorant people stay there, although they should really have the balls to deal with them without a prompt from me. Based on that first night I would have given the place one star. However, I moved to a private room for the next three nights. The room was great, The location is convenient, the chill out areas very pleasant, and staff helpful. I changed to a private room also because I wasn't feeling great. Maybe that's why my tolerance for the loud Mexicans that first morning was somewhat low. Anyway, a generous four stars for the other three nights but three overall.

Same, Same Colonial Town - But Different

I took the easy option and flew from Guadalajara to Oaxaca. It cost about £62 for an hour and a half in a plane, rather than about 15 hours on a bus. I don't think there was a lot of difference in the price either. Of course the plane was delayed, it's Mexico, but only by about 45 minutes. I took a shared taxi from the airport but had to wait about …

... who acts has his sous chef during the preparations. Not only clean, but beautifully decorated with colourful tiles and the latest equipment. Despite the gadgets, it was the mortar and pestle, the most basic of tools, to grind the myriad of ingredients that we were preparing in somewhat the traditional manner. The menu we were preparing today consisted of a "Molé Coloradito" with pork, a dish that contains up to 30 ...

... NOT the chile pasilla we find in the US. In fact it is found only in the state of Oaxaca and in some specialty shops in Mexico City.

  • Chiles rellenos are a huge pain in the ass to make and were I able to buy them pre-made as one is able to do here in the local markets, I would do so.

    ... I must have played for an hour and a half, when Brody reminded me that we were going to a buffet for dinner! I had already spent about four times my daily budget so I wasn't too game, until he told me it was 35 pesos. Tremendous. We arrived at the buffet to find it closing :(. I decided to take them to a restaurant that Chris had told me about with middle eastern and Oaxacan food. First, I got us lost, and it took me awhile to figure out the ...

    On the animal front, some dogs have been seen but no cats whatsoever. The crops have switched to the likes of cabbages and other low to the ground staples. Horses were being used to plow the fields. The Translator was chuckling at various turns of phrases in the 'chic flic'.
