Doug, Josh, Polly, Greg Visit Me In Oaxaca!

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

I’m in Oaxaca for 11 years and all three kids decide to come visit me at once!

Doug arrived August 29th but of course he didn’t tell the others! When they heard he was coming then they all decided to come…overlapping a bit! Doug missed Josh who arrived on the 14th and left on the 23rd but was here when Greg arrived on the 26th for 4 days.

Oh my gosh! Two cooking classes for Josh and a full day Mescal Tour. And shopping, walking, shopping, walking! Tasting menus at two restaurants, El Destilado and Pitiona and a third meal at Origen! And that doesn’t count the Tlacalula Market, Benito Juarez and November 20 Markets!
