Alaska, Mexico and Beyond…

“One Journey Leads to Another”

Around the City

The city of Oaxaca snakes through connecting valleys in the approximate center of the State of Oaxaca in southern Mexico. The elevation of 5110 feet  (1778 meters) makes for a temperate climate with average daytime temperatures from 75-85 F at this time of year. The sun shines all day, every day!

The Zócalo (plaza) is the bustling center of life in the city. It’s a happenin’ place, day or night!
