We decided to take a little vacation to Oaxaca. This is a log of that trip starting from days previous to departure.
Well why not? My wife and I have been to Mexico before. She actually lived there, in the capital city. So we decided to try something else, a different flavor, a whole new palette of colors from the vast Mexican territory. Music, food, art… All is new and interesting for us, and Mexico adds a special aura that we enjoy.
We went to a bunch of places in the Historic Zone around the Zócalo. The Cathedral is beautiful and since this is Easter there is plenty of activity. We were lucky to watch some Catholic celebrations inside the church and admire the impresive decoration work.
We also visited the Rufino Tamayo Museum and the Santo Domingo Church, which is one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. Righ next tonit is the “Museo de las Culturas” which took a while to visit all expos butvwas worth it. There were plenty of historic artifacts and an old library. This used to be a convent.
Got to Oaxaca super tired. First impression: it’s beautiful!!
Ready to go!
11:30 – I just got back from the pet shop where our two dogs, Kiara and Yoko will be taken care during our trip. Mixed emotions as they get very anxious, but glad at the same time because they re going to be spending their week with a lot of other dogs playing and doing dog stuff like mora playing!
We’re excited for being so close to finally take off. There are minor preparations to take care of, like taking our dogs to the hotel! We’re anticipating a lot of tours to the archaeological sites and a lot of culture and tradition as this is going to be during Easter, which brings a lot a Catholic celebrations to towns like Oaxaca.
