Recently made a trip to Oaxaca city. On the way we spent two nights at the Summer Institute of Linguistics in Mitla where they translate the New Testament into different languages.
Domingo de ramos/Palm Sunday we spent at the cemetery visiting the graves of family. In the morning people go to prepare the graves with flowers. Later in the afternoon they return to the cemetery to sit at the graves and eat and drink and visit with friends and family. They also smash eggs filled with confetti or flour on each others heads...
Jan. 5-7. Left Juchitán for a couple of days to celebrate Melanie's birthday in the beach city of Huatulco. We ate Italian food, shopped for silver, went swimming in the ocean, and got massages.
