A couple of other things that Oaxaca is famous for...
Day of the Dead (1st & 2nd November) The orangey photo was taken in a 'Day of the Dead' specific part of the market - crazy! Shows how into Halloween and Day of the Dead they are. Decoration of the city has already started and the streets are filled with orange & black decorations covered in skulls! Apparently the street parties are amazing and last for 3 days!
Chocolate is the other thing that Oaxaca specialises in... They make pure dark chocolate in little shops and sell it in thousands of flavours. Naturally I tasted each flavour at least 3 times before not buying anything!
