Greetings from Oaxaca

Well, 8 hours on the road through the ran and flooded roads, we arrived in Oaxaca around 7 two days ago. We had one day in Mexico City of weaving through cars and going into a mall where security carries fully automatic weapons. So much police and military. I´m now used to seeing AK-47 while walking on the steet, even here in Oaxaca. Oaxaca is amazing. Iǘe spent most of my time in the Zocalo (the park at the city center, every city has one) eating awesome food with live music. Last night we check out the night life (5 of us for anyone worried about night travel) and found a live band. Amazing, best female bass player I´ve seen. They played some english songs but they were much better when they sang in spanish. And...we ordered a case of beer (20) and a packet of cigs for 420 pesos and they opened our bottles for us. Our friend from France got hit on by a guy. It was funny. We are in Mezkalito Hosal which is winning as the nicest of two. It´s more like a hotel. I´m sitting beside the sunny terrace. Life is tough here, some how I´ll make it through. Were not spending much time here this time. South quick the travel back north slowly. Tonight we have an 11 hour ride toSan Cristobal de las Casas. Jungle time!

P.S. Thanks for your comments. The style will remain freestyle and I have yet to check what I´ve written, and will continue that trend.


  1. Hey Steve, say Hi to Dustin and Lindsay too.
    Steve, I couldn't be happier for you! There is every reason to believe that this trip is going to be so much more than even your wildest dreams. Carpe diem and, as AJ Foyt once said: "If you are not standing on the edge, you are taking up too much room!" Steve, just promise me that the edge you choose to stand on isn't hanging over the abyss! Now, how about some pics!
    LOve you!

  2. Hola baby bear!
    It sounds like you're having a terrific time! I'm imagining you "wandering," exploring, and experiencing the people and culture of Mexico. Drink it in, soak it up, and ENJOY!
    Te quiero mi hijo!

  3. Hey Steve,
    It's really really cold here in Toronto...should be warmed up by the time you get back tho! Hope you're having fun, keep posting (pix please!)
