Experience Oaxaca Mexico

 

I recently visited Oaxaca, Mexico. From eating crickets to experiencing world class art this trip was a once in a lifetime!

I visited the Oldest church in Oaxaca. It was built in the 16th century. When I was outside at noon, I heard music and was surrounded by Ava Maria. It was so cool because there are not any speakers. It was like it came from the sky!

Beeswax candle making is a lost art. In Oaxaca it is alive and well. Just Gorgeous!

In Oaxaca they use dried crickets in salad dressings, on top of tostadas, and in guacamole.

They tasted salty!

Oaxaca has large paper mache figures they hang outside their stores.

The paper mache figures are also uses in parades.

Oaxaca Wedding…

Oaxaca Mexico Wedding!

I was recently in Oaxaca, Mexico when I came across a Mexican Wedding procession! It was delightful!

The band leads the bride and groom, family and guests down the street. Everyone would pause in the street to dance and celebrate. The guests carry the saran wrapped gifts on top of their heads! Looks like the Bride and Groom will have plenty of pots and pans and dishes!

Good luck to this beautiful couple!
