With only 2 days of Spanish lessons remaining, I’m going to try to and get caught up a bit before heading to Guatemala. Puerto Escondido looked like it would have been a sleepy little fishing village at one time. Now, there’s a large tourist section down by the bay. Still, it was a nice place to stop for the night on my way to Oaxaca.
I posted a video for the road to Oaxaca, but this is one of the valleys you ride through.
Along the way, you ride through many mountain villages
Oaxaca is a city I could have easily spent a week in, as there are so many things to see and do.
The first day, I spent in El Centro checking out the marcado and iglesias (churches).
As well as the people and venders
Then off the ruins of Monte Alban and Mitla…..
