These are photos from our trip to Mexico
in July/August 2000 (
Part 5: Oaxaca)

Oaxaca (Oaxaca)

Once a year there happens to be in the City of Oaxaca a huge festival of folklore, called  "Guelaguetza". In order to achieve one of the free seats you should be an early bird and better get up before sunrise.

In the background you see the church of  Santo Domingo and the highly recommended Regional  Museum

Everything under control...

Hierve el Agua (Oaxaca)

The pools of Hierve el Agua ("the water boils") offer an unique swimming experience east of Oaxaca - but it's chilly cold!

Puerto Escondido

After a breathtaking journey on zigzag road from Oaxaca you get to the Pazific Ocean - Puerto Escondido, the Eldorado of the surfers - the Mexican Pipe!
