We wandered around Oaxaca City today before the tour begins. The Day of the Dead displays were still around and quite wonderful. One display was in a large shop: The Regional Assoc. Of Craftswomen of Oaxaca which is a wonderful women’s’ collective. Another shop is a well known shop with high quality textiles/fabrics. There were many shawls and things to wear that were well designed. The photo is of the shop: Arte Textil Indigena. We looked inside a big church which was guilded all over with gold: Temple Santos Domingo. We relaxed on the central square where there is a market everyday. I was surprised to see several shoe shine stands. They just seem out of place, somehow. Tomorrow we see the textile museum here then a 5-hour drive to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec.
