Oaxaca II

Some additional Oaxacan highlights:

+ People watching with a Sol from the Cafe del Jardins in the Zocalo. I did this solo for a few hours one afternoon while T was sleeping off his decidedly nasty case of food poisoning.

+ Walking the cobbled streets and eating rose petal ice cream (dairy free of course!)

+ Being directed to a market by William at our bed and breakfast La Casa de Mis Recuerdos to find the best mexican hot chocolate made with water rather than milk.

+ Visiting Mayordomo to watch chocolate being made and sampling some more chocolate caliente con agua.

+ Eating vegan mexican sandwiches on fresh homemade bread at Casa del Angel.

+ Staying our last night in the Paloma room at La Casa de Mis Recuerdos. It is one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Breakfast was included, and Conchita was able to organise for ours to be vegan, which was fresh fruit, coffee, churros and empanadas with avocade, spinach and squash flowers. If you are in Oaxaca, I would highly recommend staying here.
