We have been enjoying our first few days, being gentle with ourselves and getting used to the time difference.. slowly exploring Oaxaca with its big central square, lots of food and hand craft markets. The people here are so sweet and caring and helpful. We have even discovered that the speciality, chapulines (spicy fried grasshoppers) are actually quite nice! Oaxaca is renowned for its cuisine with culinary specialties including mole, a rich sauce made of ground chilies and a multitude of other ingredients; a local type of string cheese called quesillo; large tortillas called tlayudas,  traditional Oaxacan hot chocolate and mezcal.
