Day two in Oaxaca

It’s early morning and it seems that this is the only time I can
Peaceably blog away without others being online and slowing the
System to a snails pace.
We are enjoying Oaxaca, however it has changed just like anything else.
We see more graffiti, more empty storefronts and most importantly
The vendors here in the streets and in the markets are very aggressive
In attempting to make a sale. Unfortunately the prices are 3x what
They were four years ago. So, unless we find some art that we either
Cannot live without or can afford we just might go home without any
Treasures. Which would be a shame for everyone.
Here are a few pics - one of the grasshoppers used in local cooking and
Also as a dye for local textiles. And a pic of a Zocolo statue.
