have you ever seen two radishes fashioned into copulating scorpions? neither had i until i hit oaxaca (“wa-HA-ca”), a city about an hour or so south of mex city by air. once i sort through the zillions of pics i took from the radish fesival, your eyes shall have them too.
meawhile everyone here is talking about that canadian couple who got butchered in nearby town huatulco. rumours are flying about why they were targeted and there are lots of gory details being debated, but mostly i just think its sad for them, and sad for this beautiful place to get a bad rep and be in the grip of fear mongering. rest assured i am fine, being sensible etc. for my 2 cents there have been numerous occasions so far where mexicans have gone out of their way to help me, not to mention being super patient with my shitty spanish.
