OAXACA CITY

Oaxaca City is a beautiful happening city filled with colour, tradition and great food. I spent my days exploring around the cobblestone streets stopping in at cute little cafes or street vedors for tasty tacos or hot chai and carrot cake. Walking through the Benito Juarez markets is an adventure. You can find fresh fruit and vegies, meats, sweets, mescal and and a huge range of local handicrafts. When your legs get tired sit down for chocolate caliente (hot chocolate) with sweet bread. The chocolate is made with cacao, cinnamon and sugar, then mixed with either water or milk to make a delicious drink that you dunk your sweet bread into. At nightΒ the streets are filled with people young and old eating ice creams, chatting to friends or just people watching. On my last night in Oaxaca, a friend and I had a delicious dinner on the rooftop of a building with a beautiful view of the city. When I got back to the hostel I fell asleep to the angelic voice of a Mexican man singing and playing guitar in a little restaurant downstairs. I will miss Oaxaca- its cobblestone streets, the delicious food, the bright colours and rich culture.
