Hard to keep the camera in the purse when wandering around Oaxaca. Here are some random shots from our recent stay.
This trip represented the first time we have ever been to Oaxaca with no protesters camped out in the heart of the zocalo. Vendors were unable to fence in the plaza with stalls due to vigilant security on streets leading to it. Locals finally had their favorite benches and gathering spots back.
But one of the things this really means is that, for the first time in years, teachers are not on strike. Kids are in school, finally getting opportunities to learn to read and write.
