I'm went to Oaxaca in July 2011 courtesy of the NEH to study the arrival of the Spanish from the indigenous point-of-view. I'm now plotting to return and continue researching GM corn and colonial architecture in 2013.

And just a (slightly off topic) plug for Mexican soccer. Manchester United plays FC Barcelona for the Champions' League trophy today, and one of Man U's star players is Javier Hernandez, called Chicharito, who plays for the Mexican national team and hails from Guadalajara. Although I'm cheering for Barca, I'd like to see the Little Pea play well!
