this is what you call "Oaxaca Swagger"
Check out this flyer. it says "Basta de Racismo.. Ya No?!" and at the bottom it has Urkel saying "I am ready to PIMP!"
LOL WUT?! Can someone please tell me whether this is the work of very dumb Leftists or very clever racist trolls?
"Oaxaca es Mujere"
This is where I'm going to DJ next week.. how perfect is this?
Yadira, the manager, is the Queen of all small, edible dogs... and my heart.
Her boyfriend is also quite an awesome fellow.
A Tlayuda with Carne Enchilada. These things are huge! I wasn't really feeling the texture of the tortilla itself- it is sort of hard and dry, but the toppings are good. A must-try in Oax.
Un Indigino Graupo. These are from the collection of an ethnographer from back in the days.

Who was taking a photo as well
