Pictures of Oaxaca, San Cristobal and Palenque Surrounding Area

Today won’t be much of a post, it is mostly just pictures of the last few places. I got food poisoning on vacation, and there is nothing else that I want more than to be with my husband at home. 82 more words

Monte Albán

I’ve been based in Oaxaca for over a week now, and loving it.  But, there is so much to tie together and document that I haven’t been able to coherently put it together and feature it in a clear manner.   564 more words

Day 8

Today was my first real weekend day here. I couldn’t sleep in, but at least sleep an hour more… I really start to like breakfast here: eggs, ham, tortillas, quesadillas, fresh fruits and coffee. 382 more words

Oaxaca City, Mexico

The jewel of Mexico. This city is a place to plan to visit for a few days and stay for years. With stunning colonial architecture, paved pedestrian streets, beautiful churches, rich culture and gorgeous food, Oaxaca is a place to stop, relax, learn Spanish or take up some volunteering. 101 more words

WOW, MONTE ALBÁN / ¡GUAU, MONTE ALBÁN!

Yes, I was taking a picture of a picture being taken at the archaeological site of Monte Albán. (And that person is so excited!)

Visiting Ruins – From Mexico City to Cancun (03)

2009-12-27 Mexico City to Oaxaca

今天要离开墨西哥城,一路往西,我们行程的终点是墨西哥度假胜地坎昆(Cancun)。整个行程约2314公里。
我们通过Bamba Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Pass来安排从墨西哥城到坎昆的交通。这是一家旅游交通公司,根据我们安排的行程,把我们从一个城市送到另一个城市,途中也安排了一些旅游项目。

下一站是瓦哈卡(Oaxaca),距离墨西哥城东南520公里。
早上9:10 am一部小面包车来客栈将我们接走,又去另一客栈接了三位德国小伙子。10:00 am左右离开墨西哥城。

在墨西哥城中央广场(Zocalo)见到人工搭建的冰雪场,以为墨西哥人见不到自然冰雪。想不到在墨西哥城到瓦哈卡途中会经过二座火山,分别是墨西哥境内的最高峰(Pico de Orizaba, 5636 m)和次高峰(Popocatepetl, 5426 m),山顶上终年积雪。

高速公路旁硕大的雕塑。

途中停车三次。下午5:00 pm到达入住的客栈 Hostal de Mercado。 50 more words
