Best Pictures, Post #7

11Taxi, anyone?

2Ever wondered what your chocolate is made from? Here we have a cacao pod, cocoa beans, cinnamon sticks, and almonds.

3The Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. It's a fascinating place to wander through, especially the parts that describe ethnic groups from more modern times.

4Santo Domingo church and convent-turned-museum.

5A little rug weaving operation in Teotitlan. It's pretty typical of most of the places, especially those on the outskirts of town.

6A couple of people trying out the jet skis at Huatulco. Notice that there are only places to eat here on the beach rather than lots of hotels like Cancun. And less people. Even the president elect of Mexico vacations here (a missionary friend of mine met him at one of the nice hotels recently).

7Benito Juarez is a lovely place; tranquil, relaxed, and beautiful.

8One of the strangest VWs I've ever seen. Not really a convertible, but not anything else I know a name for... :)

9The Zocalo. Before the teachers moved in. And before the teachers trashed the place. This is how the Zocalo should really look, and not how the teachers have made it look now.

10A nice little waterfall going under a bridge up in the mountains a six or seven hour drive from the city of Oaxaca.
