Check out 12 so spent morning packing and checked out. Afternoon wandered into Oaxaca City, went in Santa Domingo church, then went to zocalo, saw cathedral, got some money out and insect repellent. Then had a tlayuda in zocalo square and a Drink - horchata o Aqua ...
... hierve el Aqua - very beautiful in hills, with pools hanging off tops, natural rock formations that resemble a waterfall, stunning Then went for lunch but no one ate as overpriced buffet. Then onto mitla but didn't go in ruins as starving so we went for tlayuda instead - big tortilla with bean spread, cheese, onion, tomato, guacamole and meat. Followed by local ice cream speciality- I had piña colada and a local fruit flavours Then only mezcal ...
... Mercado de Artisanias - the artisans market. Small, but packed with little stalls selling locally made clothing, rugs, jewellery and lots more. A few purchases were obligatory.
However outside the city were the real stars - the Zapotec sites of Monte Alban and Mitla. We were lucky to get a great guide for both tours - Antonio, himself of Zapotec ancestry & holistic healer.

Stayed in a slick camping spot next to a waterfall. It was a good spot to catch up on laundry and to relax a bit. This was one of those real natural waterfalls too, not that BS man-made business. Evander Holyfield would be proud.
