... a massive quesadilla stuffed with meat, cheese, avocado, peppers, beans, and plenty of great spices. Just as I was ready to hunt down this dinner, the city's pastels turned to watercolors, as the sky turned into charcoal. Fine...I got an umbrella. My palette was ready for some tlajudia, and a little rain wasn't gonna stop me.
The little rain turned into a full on thunderstorm, and I made myself comfortable in the restaurant until it ...
... it's like to stroll a city where one must almost always keep one eye on the ground just ahead. (I learned this the hard way a few years ago in the Reforma neighborhood to the north of us when I caught my foot on a root-raised piece of sidewalk and was sent sprawling. I was amazed at how quickly the nearby pedestrians ...
... power cables. The distance between the cables opened up and I just barely passed through, dodging an end to my dream (you always wake up when you die in a dream). I made it to the ledge of a building, and pulled myself up. I stood there for a minute, realizing I was struggling to fly. I looked in the distance and saw a huge open valley. I crouched down and pushed up fast, flying into the air. I was soaring above a big open freeway similar to Highway 66, but no desert. ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel CasAntica Oaxaca
What can I say? The hotel is a beautiful old building in one of Oaxaca's unasuming streets. It is close to everything but is suprisingly quiet. Absolutely beautiful interiors and the staff are wonderful. They went out of their way to help with adapters, rechargers, tours and even wrapping up pottery we bought from the ruins. We would encourage anyone who is visiting Oaxaca to stay at the Hotel Casantica.
