Dia #11 - Street art

There's very little graffiti this year compared to a couple of years ago, I read somewhere that a lot of it was painted over last fall. Most of the ones below come from one house near Santo Domingo and the last one is from Ocotlan.

Dia #10 - Taking your goat for a walk..

I always love to go to Ocotlan's market, about 1 hour out of Oaxaca. Had to edit the number of pics to post but these will hopefully give you an idea of the bustle..

Dia #9 - Today's yoga lesson

I love to go to yoga  every morning at the above yoga studio, Casa del Angel. Today's message was to love oneself, illustrated by this Sufi poem:

Dios respecta el hombre que trabaja, pero ama el que baila
(God respects the man who works, but he loves the one who dances)

Some of you are probably thinking that I didn't need any more encouragement in that field... Heck, la vida es corta....


Can't wait to take Nick to the monday morning Laughing Meditation session. He IS a trooper.

xo all.

This last one is from the new Museum of Textiles:

Oh, and this is the view when I step out of my bedroom every morning:
