OaxacaDecember 22, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C
Today, we took the cuota to Oaxaca. It was a lot of rolling, but luckily more downhill than uphill. The only problem was the dirty shoulder we had to use. We were actually expecting at least one flat tyre again, but seems we were lucky. Along the highway, some Mexicans sold wooden toys, mainly trucks and cars. Interesting place to sell those kind of stuff we thought.
Once we arrived in Oaxaca, we were a bit shocked in a way. There were soooo many people, Mexicans as well as tourists. Hard to believe it's the same city I went to language school 13 years ago.... It's still a stunning place with colourful colonial architecture. And of course, we bumped into a parade again. After some exploring amd shopping in the market, we enjoyed a quiet meal in our hostel. We went for another walk into the centre when it was dark. It looked nice with all the lights, but after a while we decided it was too busy for us. What a difference to all the little villages we came passed the last few days.Read more
