and just like that, we arrived at the end of August. i hope your summer has been lovely. i hope it got a sprinkle of romance, a dollop of debauchery, a cup full of joy with the top shelf stuff.
for the month of July i hopped down to mexico for a little adventure. Oaxaca has been on my list for about 7 years. i remember sitting next to a middle age American lady on a plane many years ago. she was eating an avocado with a spoon at the window seat. both of us being solo travelers we just started trading pleasantries. i still recall how she beamed when Oaxaca came up. at the time i didn't even know how to pronounce Oaxaca or knew where it was, but her enthusiasm left a spark in my mind.
i made it, finally! and it was even more wonderful than i had imagined. amazing food, amazing guelaguetza festival, amazing coffee, amazing friends. i could not have been any luckier! maybe it was the papel picado necklace that brought me luck. i was very happy to receive quite a few compliments on it.
you got a question about traveling to Oaxaca? do you want my recommendations? wanna tell me about your favorite taco joint? don't be shy. please, write me anytime! i would like to hear your stories. :)
