Xochitl’s accounts show the disconnect between the low level of frustration, anxiety and aggression in Oaxaca, that is just below the surface, but invisible to the passerby tourists. I have heard that everything is fine and back to normal in Oaxaca, the Club Elefante is back open and people are partying again. This was written by a woman physician from Philadelphia describing her experience with two companions this month while the government was busy painting over the graffiti all over the city.
Dear friends and family,
After about a week of traveling around Mexico, on the run after our arrest, we returned to Oaxaca for a few days before leaving the country. It was a beguiling, heart-wrenching and stressful time.
