T and I happened to arrived in Oaxaca a few days before the Guelaguetza festival. Everyone seemed to be in great spirits leading up to the festival, with lots of dancing practice happening in parks, parades being held and fireworks being let off at any (and every) opportunity, including at 7 am in the morning. After T recovered from his food poisoning, we also enjoyed the Mezcal festival, where for about US$1 you could enjoy as many mezcal samples as you could drink. It was very merry to say the least.
