I didn’t mean to take such a long hiatus! I’ve been on the road exploring Oaxaca and taking a break from my laptop. After a scenic yet exhausting 20-hour bus ride back from Pochutla, I arrived back in Mexico City. I got back on my computer to check what I missed on facebook/blogsphere and the internet suddenly felt like a big city without a map.
On the other hand, traveling without a map can lead to pleasant surprises. And Oaxaca was beautiful. We mostly traveled via microbuses and pick-up trucks. We ate a lot of tamales, learned the traditional method of distilling mezcal, sat by the edge of a cliff and dipped our feet into a natural warm spring, watched epic sunsets every evening, stayed at ecological hand-built adobe houses and grass huts, and got a nice tan (or extremely sunburned).
Here are a few photos for now:
P.S. I’m suffering from the case of monday blues and it’s not even monday anymore! I tried taking a cold shower, gulping black coffee, and going on a walk. Maybe I need to get back into power yoga.
What do you do to shake off the monday blues?
