OAXACA, TIERRA DEL SOL
Oaxaca. Pueblos milenarios and as of December 2010, a new state
government. There are changes afoot in 'Tierra del Sol,' this
southern Mexican state blessed with mountains, verdant valleys
and a beautiful coast on the Pacific Ocean.
There are many things
to do. Visit a traditional
market, take a Spanish
language class or cooking
lesson. Learn to say 'thank you' in an indigenous language.
Shoppers, think about collecting unique folk
art and visiting the artisans themselves! Options abound.
The best advice - think smart, travel slow. Poke around. The
Oaxaca coverage on Planeta.com has the most depth and breadth.
