It’s my first full week back in Oaxaca and it’s good to be home (although it would be way better if Kyle were here too). The Guelaguetza celebrations are ramping up and there are all sorts of parades and impromptu celebrations in the streets. Guelaguetza is the huge celebration of indigenous culture here in the state of Oaxaca. In the midst of all the tensions from the teacher protests, the city is also alive with history, tradition, and people proud of their heritage and eager to share it. It’s a great time to be here and I’m looking forward to all the celebrations have to offer over the next ten days, from molé and mezcal to ferias, arts and crafts, dancing and parades.
