Oaxaca Bound

December 8, 2018

We’re on our way to Oaxaca. It’s been a bit chilly in the northern and central regions of Mexico, and we’re excited to be heading to warmer climate. The small towns of Mineral de Pozos, Patzcuaro and Valle de Bravo have been charming and authentic with welcoming locals and incredible food.

The roads have been crazy. hilarious. The fireworks (that you never see, but always hear) that begin at dusk and last until midnight (every day) have been crazy. hilarious. The unpredictable street dogs, friend, or foe (you never know what you’re going to get), have been crazy. hilarious. And so have the fiestas with locals staying up singing and playing music until 4am (everyday)!

Mexican culture has thus far been a lovely, humbling and grounding experience that continues to hold our minds in awe, wonder and respect. Last, but not least, it’s been a real treat to be amongst, and to see so many beautiful monarch butterflies as we migrate south with them. Not to mention, mating Dragonflies and Praying Mantis’.

Please visit our Mexico Trip Reports page to see pictures from Karl and more detailed information on the places we’ve visited so far. If you feel so inspired, feel free to share our journey with others. In the meantime, I (Leah) am working on the website, so we can bring even more stories of adventure from the Wolves. Oz has a lot to say!

    Please google the top restaurants in Oaxaca. Some of them are truly outstanding. The market is wonderful. Oaxaca is famous for moles. At night the Zócalo is teeming with activity. One of the best restaurants is I believe on the rooftop of the hotel Oaxaca right next to the cathedral. Another, and I wish I could remember it’s name, is on the outskirts of town. There is also one a little north of the center of this that is only open on certain days of the week. The breakfasts there are incredible. Within an hour or two of the city are a number of small towns. Each of them is famous for their unique crafts, , black pottery, tin works, natural dye weaving, etc. Make sure to visit some. Love Dad

    In Oaxaca, have a cervesa on the west side of the plaza at sunset and watch the light on the cathedral turn from pink to deep purple! Awesome! And near by Monte Alban is a must!
