Oaxaca (Wa-kha-ka)

The way from Puebla to Oaxaca was very beautiful. At one point we passed some trucks near the toll payment, and it took us a while to realized they were carrying circus animals. By that time we had already passed them, but after paying the toll we parked for a bathroom break and they stopped next to us, so we got a chance to admire the animals up close: lions and tigers and monkeys and camels… We passed them again when we kept driving, and we saw them again in Oaxaca.

Oaxaca city is nice and has a small center, which makes it easy to visit. They have a few markets, where the most interesting thing is Grillos – it’s a tiny grasshopper made into a snack.
