Our apartment in Oaxaca
We rented a lovely apartment in the Jalatlaco barrio just on the other side of Calzada Republica. It was far enough away from the zocalo to be very quiet even on the nights when the Guelaguetza festival was at its height but only ten minutes from Santo Domingo and even closer to what became my favorite area, the Paseo Juarez "El Llano," a park that was always lively and full of families and walkers and no tourists.
We really got into the rhythm of Oaxacan life, staying up late, sleeping late, having a leisurely breakfast, and taking a nice siesta in mid-afternoon!
