Oaxaca ...here we come!

Travels in search of art and good food...

Painting purchased on the street
in Morelia, Michocan
November 2007.

Once again Russell and I are dragging out our little
suitcases and packing up for a trip to Mexico....

However this time is different what with the possible
health issues at this time. Swine flu? Pandemic?
So, rather than panic and run around trying to
cancel travel arrangements, we have secured the
recommended prescriptions for this specific flu.
Unless things really get worse we will be
leaving within the week for a 2 week stay
in the capitol city of Oaxaca. We will be traveling
to some little artisan villages, taking cooking classes
and generally enjoying this beautiful old colonial
and historical city. We were here once before and loved it.
I'll be taking our laptop with us and will attempt to blog daily
with a few photos. That way you can travel along with us!!
Pig print purchased in the same city park
in Morelia, Michocan. On Sundays artists set up
their easels and finished work to sell in the
park outside the baroque cathedral in downtown Morelia.
