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.

Preparations are underway
Tomorrow we're helping prepare a community altar for Day of the Dead, so we spent today in the field cutting marigolds and coxcombs. We were rewarded with a picnic lunch of tortillas, grilled meats and mezcal!
