  • 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.

  • 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
  • M -- A -- Z Wanted to give the whole picture of this area, usually referred to, and on maps, as Mazunte. There are actually three areas (and a little more): Mazunte, San Agustinillo, and Zipolite (M-A-Z). Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 5, 2015
  • Research day Well...I was supposed to be doing research today: but only if the internet co-operated. It didn't. So I spent most of the day trying to get enough speed to make connections. (It's now 5pm on the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 6, 2015
  • Sometimes results are not equal to effort There are a couple small beaches a little east of here that I wanted to check out. So I got out early, poor sunrise, and climbed the hill at the end of my Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Dec 7, 2015
  • Happy Thanksgiving! Went to bed at 10pm. Woke up at 3am. Decided to stay up, work on the computer a little. Had a banana and apple juice for breakfast. As much as I enjoy dining out, there's Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 25, 2015
  • Nothing day Got up, did a little studying, went to class. After class, stopped at this popular cafe and bakery. I had some kind of egg sandwich for $3 and a latte for $1.50. Went back to Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 26, 2015
  • A good look at Puerto Escondido My time in Puerto Escondido is dwindling away rapidly. So I need to take a good look around. I'm in the northwest part of town. I've already been in the Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 27, 2015
  • Playa Zicatela Left just after 6am to check out the Zicatela area (southeastern part of town). Short story is that it's like the rest of the town: neither fancy nor shabby. Posted by raydesro in Ray's travels | Nov 28, 2015
