  • North central Oaxaca It's Monday: last chance for me to go places I hadn't been to yet. I'd been by this park several times on the bus: it looked nice, so I decide to visit Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 27, 2015
  • Bad day Cold again. I don't like staying in bed until 10am just to stay warm, waiting for the outside temp to rise. Now I'm ready to move on just to be warmer. Don't get me wrong: I Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 28, 2015
  • More research I took advantage of my free time and internet to download some ebooks (just choosing a book is time consuming: most of what I like to read - mostly fantasy at the moment - are series; trouble is that Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 29, 2015
  • Ready to move on All packed at 10am. The bus leaves at 7:10pm, so I'm just gonna hang out on the premises (lots of places to do that) until 6pm, then jump into a taxi to the bus station. Did quite Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 30, 2015
  • The day from hell The bus ride to Tapachula was more or less uneventful. I slept a little here and there. There was some kind of inspection point or something along the way: when we got there, two buses were already Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 31, 2015
  • Tule - Mitla tour Crisp, clear morning view of the mountains. They don't look too impressive , do they? Oaxaca downtown is at 5000 ft. I'm at 5500 ft. Those mountains are over 9000 ft, with the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 20, 2015
  • Monte Alban to San Bartolo Same routine as yesterday, except when we got to the office we left almost right away. Went to Monte Alban first. The guide spent about 20 min. explaining the site in Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 21, 2015
  • Oaxaca Mercados Went to town to check out the mercados. I had a little trouble finding the first one, and ended up at the Zócalo. I wanted to check out this restaurant, so I figured now was a good Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 22, 2015
  • Christmas Eve A quick trip to town. Trouble getting back again. Unless you know your route, no one else, including bus drivers, seems to know which bus stop you should be at. So, instead of waiting forever and Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 23, 2015
  • Merry Christmas! Christmas is a holiday, right? Aren't we just supposed to take it easy and chill out? Well, you're not going to catch me breaking with tradition! I did absolutely nothing, except read and watch movies. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 24, 2015
  • From Huatulco to Oaxaca Grabbed a cab at 8:45 for my 9:30 bus. Bus was 15 min late. Went up, down, and around hills. Got stopped by State Police for inspection. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 13, 2015
  • Great new residence Last night, using the little bit of internet connection I could get, I found a hostel that looked good: La Villada. [[http://www.hostels.com/hostels/oaxaca/la-villada-inn-hostel/16956?dateFrom=2015-12-16&dateTo=2015-12-17&guestCount=&groupType=#anchor=o Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 14, 2015
  • Chill day Spent three hours this morning on the internet: updating some programs, and doing some research. Went up to the office to pay for the rest of my stay (one of the reasons I went into town yesterday was Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 15, 2015
  • Town runaround Not getting any sunrise or sunset photos: I'm on the north face of this small mountain; both the east and west views are blocked by trees and houses; the west view is also blocked by the top of the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 16, 2015
  • La Villada in pics Woke up and saw color in the sky. Took another look at the tourist brochures. Then I went up to Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 17, 2015
  • Oaxaca market day It was cold this morning, so I stayed in bed all bundled up and did more research on sights to see. About three hours later, I decided it was time to hit the road. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 18, 2015
  • Tlacolula market Sunday is market day in Tlacolula de Matamoros, about 20 mi southeast of here. This is the second biggest market in the area, after the one I saw yesterday. Unlike the one I saw yesterday, although you Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 19, 2015
  • 9 hours - no electricity Plenty of clouds this morning! Lightning flashes for quite a while last night, but no rain here. Looked like it was to the east. Moving on Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 8, 2015
  • Looking around Huatulco and Pochutla Left the beach a little after 7am, got to Pochutla a little after 8am, riding one of these pickup trucks tricked out for hauling people as well as stuff. Wasn't that bad a ride even on Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 9, 2015
  • From Pochutla to Crucecita Wasn't planning on staying in Pochutla, but thought I'd take a look around anyway. Upon closer inspection it doesn't look like my room was cleaned: the sheets weren't crisp and the bath was Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 10, 2015
  • Intrepid beach explorer! Going to make a major effort to get to every beach I can, by land. Over the hill, and through the woods... Started out on foot, as usual. Nice roads, Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 11, 2015
  • Tangolunda Walked from my hotel to the cab area. This is the local 'depot' for the 'supervans' (that's what the locals call these). Half a block farther, and across the six lane divided Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 12, 2015
  • Nice digs - good day Got up to go find another room. I didn't even want to shower in here! Mazunte is just around the corner (1/2 mi) from here. Took a walk there yesterday, but most places are Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 2, 2015
  • Transvestites Not much for sunrise. Tanning day. No internet today, so I read for a while, then went out and sunned for 30-40 minutes, 'til I couldn't stand the heat. Maybe went out half a dozen times. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 3, 2015
  • Clear skies I woke up at 6am. Even though there were a few clouds in the sky, there wasn't much color. Or maybe my eyes didn't see it, after last night. Went Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 4, 2015
