    Not sure about the huge metal cross on the wall in my room.

I have a large room with a small balcony but the bed is like sleeping on concrete.

    Oaxaca is famous for the Mayan ruins at Mont Alban. A vast site 500 bc with temples, residences, an observatory and a massive ball game court. Apparently political and other issues could be settled by a game. There is evidence that you can only lose once because you will not be around on this mortal coil to play a second game.

    ... myself a Mexican SIM card - no one should live without internet 24/7. Pretty chilled out afternoon - we went to the museo de la Revolucion (where the Mexican Revolution started) - no English translation which was a pain. We then headed to the bibliotheca which we had to pay 20 pesos to wander for like 10 steps and not be allowed to take any photos boo, we decided to ...

    ... interesting look around. Perhaps more impressive (And certainly less constrained by language barriers) was the imposing red Church of Santo Domingo (built in 1650). As impressive as some of the other churches (And Cathedrals) I had seen in Mexico had been I was really taken by surprise when it came to this one. knowledge and religion can be left aside for this one, the only thing you need to appreciate this is a pair of eyes.
