Oaxaca is a sight to behold. I am simply overwhelmed by the wonders and the wanderers who are home to this valley, state and of course it’s downtown, the Historical Centro. Check out one of our Oaxaca’s Tour Guide websites:
Not long ago, I flew into Oaxaca on Aero Mexico and that silly magazine they put in the little pocket in front of your seat had, yes, you guessed it, a picture of Oaxaca followed by articles about food, handicraft and ads to match each article. What I wasn’t ready for, upon landing at 10:30 pm was construction at the airport, then out on, what seemed to be most every road into and out of Oaxaca’s downtown. It reminded me of the riots in 2006 when APPO blocked most every road and the air was full of the scent of burning tires and tear gas, but now every street was torn up for construction and the air was filled with sand, cement and dust.
As someone once told me in Oventic, a Zapatista camp in Chiapas, “Until the Zapatistas staged riots and revolution, the government never paid any attention to us.” Well, perhaps the same may be said for Oaxaca as, since the riots and demonstrations of 2006, this basically remained as it had been (if you were a tourist) for two decades. But no, let the locals throw a little riot and suddenly, new streets, Cable, new laws (and we need some) and BINGO, Oaxaca is back on the map as a number one tourist destination. If you need photos, just look at how the town looked during the riots and replace the Federalies with workers, the gas with dust and the blockades with plastic five gallon water bottles.
Back to the magazine. Anyone who wants to know what’s going on here can find a more information at the Oaxaca Lending Library’s Website than they can at the tourist bureau, as Margie Barclay put it all in one place, chronologically http://www.oaxacacalendar.com/.
Wondering where to stay in San Miguel Allende? Check out http://www.casitadelasflores.com. The location is great, the place is very clean, and you can’t beat the rates. Check it out. The Jaguar
