Oaxaca, Day 2: Parque Paseo Juarez de Llano

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 […]
