In a weeks time I'll be on a flight heading south to Oaxaca, Mexico. The highlight of the trip being a dear friends wedding. Beyond the wedding festivities, there are so many amazing sights and experiences to take in while in Oaxaca. Let's start with their food. Oaxaca is known for their multitude of mole sauces and abundance of incredible street food. Then there's the mezcal and grasshoppers, oh, my! My obsession with cactus has me excited beyond belief to experience Oaxaca's botanical gardens. The city is also known for its black pottery and textiles, which will likely be where some of my pesos end up. Many articles I've read about Oaxaca tout Hierve El Agua, a petrified stone waterfall, as one of the most stunning sights in the area. Along with the waterfall there's a naturally formed infinity pool nearby. Eeek!
Can you tell I'm excited about my impending trip? If there's anything I must not miss while in Oaxaca, please do let me know!
