I’m heading to Mexico later this month and looking forward to returning to Oaxaca. My last and first trip there was several years ago and I’ve always wanted to return.
The state and city, a UNESCO World Heritage site, of Oaxaca are located in the southern part of Mexico, about a five hour ride from Mexico City. Its diversified cultures include Zapotecs and Mixtecs. Oaxaca is also a prime location to experience Day of the Dead and is well known for its high quality crafts.
Pictured are local delicacy chapulines, sugar candy skulls, handicrafts, the zocalo and Day of the Dead folk art. These have appeared in newspapers, magazines, guide and textbooks.
