More Oaxaca

Mural depicting part of the history of Oaxaca (the more recent era) in a government building.

The state motto of Oaxaca is on the banner. It translates as Respect for All People Means Peace. If someone builds a wall between here and Mexico, I'm staying here.

More fun facts: Oaxaca is the size of Indiana--unless you flatten out the mountains. Then it's the size of Texas.

There's a spectacular beach 160 miles from here with world class surfing. It's a 6 1/2 hour drive because you have to cross three mountain ranges.

A taxi ride anywhere in the city center amounts to 2 dollars and 50 cents. No tipping.

Day of the Dead is approaching. The city is getting ready. We are all on the same path.

Beautiful. Yep. If that wall ever got built I know which side I'd want to be on.
