Oaxaca is a city and state in southern Mexico that today is a popular destination for foreign and domestic tourists and those wishing to spend the winter months in a warm, sunny climate. Oaxaca has been populated for thousands of years and there is still a large indigenous population that carry on traditions and customs from years past. It is known for its cuisine, its festivals, its archeological sites and its artisans and crafts including weaving, textiles, pottery (green, red, black), alebrijes and mezcal. Charlie Roger has spent a few winters in Oaxaca and would like to share his experiences from there.
