Today was much more energetic than yesterday, we decided to walk up to Juarez Parque, on the other side of central Oaxaca. According to lara’s little pedometer, we walked 6 miles today. On the way, we found a wonderful little coffee shop, called Black Coffee Gallery. a wonderful space with good coffee, lots of light, and good latte’s. we’ll go back.
An old lamp post in the park, with a riot of flowers in the background.
We spotted this cat walking around in the park, and thought for a moment that it was feral. Then this gentleman picked it up, and it became obvious that it’s a pet cat. Boneless, apparently.
Heard this BMW pull up to a stoplight, thinking to myself that it didn’t sound like every other little buzz-bomb running around town. Glancing over, sure enough! A classic toaster-tank airhead, apparently still being ridden daily.
It appears that the local police department got a bunch of new bikes this year; wee-stroms this time, instead of the normal honda or yamaha 250’s. It was pretty comical sometimes to see two cops, double-up on a honda 250, trying to make it up the hills!
There’s not a lot of graffiti around town this year, but there are a few pieces with some color and style. Here’s one that really caught my eye.
Lara has also put up some pictures today. you can see there at Ms. Shoes blog.
Tomorrow; a tour of the botanical gardens, and a photo survey of the motorcycles of Oaxaca streets. At least that’s the thinking, plans and contact with reality and all that!
