After the monthlong party that is Guelaguetza here in Oaxaca, the city is finally calming down to it’s regular pace, which means we’ve got a bit more time on our hands to wander and enjoy the city without being blocked by parades and attending celebrations all over town. It’s always fun to be part of the big celebrations, but it’s also nice to have the city & our life go back to normal.
And August in general is shaping up to be much more peaceful as well. We’ve been enjoying catching up with old friends, making new ones, and just enjoying our life here. We’ve finally slipped back into some of our favorite old routines, from Saturday shopping in the big mercado, to popping into our friend’s brewery to see what new beer is on tap, and stopping off to chat with our favorite street vendors about the happenings while we were away.
Here are a few favorite memories from the past few weeks (since we forgot to post last week).
