It seemed like there was always a 'parade' of some sort happening - maybe it was just that I was there the week before Christmas?!?!?) I cannot say enough good things about Oaxaca though. The 'vibe', the people, the food, the culture

There are so many great places in Oaxaca to crisscross day and night, people watching, gathering in the ambiance, and this street is one, as are several parallel streets gently inclined from the Zocalo to Santo Domingo and the interesting 'shopping' streets, people plazas there....More
