Oaxaca City, Mexico
Many buildings were brightly colored
including the Democratic Party headquarters in Zaachila
A restaurant along one of the many cobblestone streets.
The old aqueduct. There are homes and businesses under some of the arches.
Several streets between our apartment and the zocalo and around the zocalo are pedestrian only, which makes the walking pleasant.
This Friday and Saturday market was in Llano park right by our apartment.
These interesting tomatoes and the turkeys below were in the market in Zaachila.
Oaxaca, like Merida, is kept very clean. Photo near the cathedral.
A few days later we were in this shop when wind tumbled these over. Later we saw figures like these in a parade.
Weaving is one of the local crafts. Pat liked this rug in Teotitlan, a village known for its weavers. Below the courtyard of a restaurant there.
A nice dinner at La Naranga
The mole negro, a black or chocolate mole, at La Naranga.
The outdoor restaurant La Capilla in Zaachila
