Before I leave Oaxaca Aurora takes me to the market again–this time the food market. What a wonder these places are.
I’ll just show you some random images because they are so cool.
One of the great things about having a personal tourguide is I learn more. For instance, Aurora explained that these dolls all wear the traditional costumes from the various regions of Oaxaca…
So I take a closer look
No Way would I have known that being a solo tourist. Very cool.
An eating area where you select your fresh meat
And then they cook it for you
A tour of the molinero
The clothing side of the market
Hand carved Oaxacan specialties
Dresses for young Oaxacan princesses
Yeah, well, stuff for the older princesses
Then Aurora took me to a store that sells religious artifacts…Whar a holy BIG business! I think the store had about 20 rooms…
Wall to wall icons
And last but not least an ice cream. (Well, a sorbet–no dairy for two weeks!!!) Sorbet is just frozen liquid, right?
