Enchanted by Oaxaca

“Me encanta Oaxaca” – Spanish voices it so much more beautifully than “We loved Oaxaca”. The overused word “love” sounds cheap in English. Oaxaca was so rich – with culture, art, artisans, people, food and drink. As Fred remarked, its a “real” city. (Map this!)

    Yes indeed. Spanish is very elegant and expressive in it’s constructs!

    Thanks Vinay. Our Spanish is at a halt right now, as we are studying this pedantic tome on the Maya culture.

    Madhuri –
    We worked out four times a week at a local gym. That combined with the exotic foods and I may have lost some weight.

    Hola Neena and Shreesh, wonderful pictures indeed. And I am homesick for the colours, the scents, the music and the food of Oaxaca as well. Buenos Aires is wonderful, but similar to Europe. Might be returning to Mexico for a while .. And Madhuri, I can confirm that Shreesh worked out quite a lot in Oaxaca, and I thought he looked fit and healthy.. I am taking Spanish classes again, and this time, I am the only one who is asking all the questions! Am getting used to the ‘yeyeo’ – which is the phenomenon of pronouncing the ll’s and y’s as sh..
    Chao all – talk soon.
