A compendium of several trips to Oaxaca, one of my favorite cities in Mexicao (and the world, for that matter). Getting there, one hotel review (the only one I've stayed at, but it's so great I've never bothered looking any further), tourist sites, and dining. Note: This journal still under construction.
