Mexican Souvenirs

These are some of the beautiful souvenirs we brought home from Oaxaca. We bought alot of chocolate, but ate almost all of it before we got home. We had Hot Chocolate every day for breakfast. It was delicious.

We spent 17 days in Oaxaca. It was fantastic. I feel so blessed that we experienced it. We loved walking up to Santa Domingo each day, exploring the area. We visited Monte Alban and saw parades and watch the Silent Procession during Semana Santa, an incredibly moving experience.

Angel loved it, she learned where chocolate came from and it was the highlight of the day going in and having a little sample. The markets are easy to get to and the Zocalo is beautiful. Lots of gorgeous architecture, especially the church. The Cathedral in the Zocalo has beautiful windows with angels etched in them.

The handmade embroidered clothes are breath taking and so are the rugs and wooden toys. There is so much to see in Oaxaca. I highly recommend you all visit Oaxaca City.
