6. – 8. Aug 2019
In Oaxaca I met Asis again who became my travel buddy throughout Mexico. We stayed in an Airbnb here and discovered the city in order to find some cool spots for celebrating my birthday. 🙂 It actually is an awesome place to be with lots of art galleries, colonial buildings, and street music. Thus, I spent my 32nd birthday eating cake, marveling at art, and listening to street musicians in this part of México. Big thanks to Asis, who did everything possible in order to give me a great birthday here far away from family and friends.
The next day, we went on a pretty cool tour around this region. First, we were taken to Santa Maria del Tule where the tree with the widest trunk in the world is to be found (el árbol del Tule). Then, we were able to watch people make rugs in the old-fashioned way and discover the process of making mezcal. The second last stop was at some ruins again (another day, another ruin…) before we finally ended up at the Hierve el Aqua – petrified waterfalls. An incredible natural wonder! 🙂
