Oaxaca: Overeating, Mezcal & Culture

Oaxaca: Overeating, Mezcal & Culture

. 2 min read

Oh, Oaxaca. Probably the most hyped tourist destination in Mexico right now, it did not disappoint. It's known for its rich cuisine, mezcal and diverse culture. If spending your days eating tlyaudas, chocolate, mole and sipping mezcal is your idea of a good time, look no further. For something cultural, you can explore the nearby Zapotecan archeological sites of Mitla and Monte Alban. And don't even get me started on the crazy cultural festival that is Guelaguetza, during the last 2 weeks of July. Actually, it feels like there is always a cultural festival happening in Oaxaca.

Being back in Germany (sorry Kartoffeln fans) and writing this is really making me miss the food. Who wants to take a trip to Oaxaca?
