Charming and typical for this town as far as decor. Very central. Not as noisy as I thought it might be at night although because of the structure and layout it can be noisy with people coming and going despite the signs asking occupants to be quiet. There is a corridor light so if your room door faces this and the staff forget to turn if off it's not easy to get to sleep. I was disappointed with my traditional tortilla soup in the hotel's restaurant. My room is probably not the best positioned, room 307. There are lots of little extras.

I got Daphne and tried to rouse the kids but they were tired (read: Diego was asleep, and Sophia had a book in her hand) so we went out for a brief time to join up with the calenda again. (Nini, both ...
... got wasted. Lucy & Dave headed home early. Lucy's is leaving in the morning and Dave and I plan to go to Monte Alban. So I headed to the next club to meet up with Kyle a Canadian who works at the hostel & Susanna who also works there with Mao. I had about 5 beers and was ready to go home. Kyle offered to walk ho,e with me. I would have declined if I had known he was going to be a sleeze bag. When we got back to the hostel he tried to kiss me ...
... the cliff edge leaving the minerals behind on the way down - and voila, petrified waterfalls. The site was enhanced by an impressive backdrop of desert mountains, and I got some particularly good pictures after making friends with the bus driver, who took me down to a better vantage point.
And that was my brief stop in Oaxaca. The next update won't be for a few days, as I am in and around Mexico City for a week.
