Oaxaca, Mexico Rest Day
Today is a rest day in Oaxaca, Mexico. We're at the Anturium Hotel, right in the heart of the city. Secure parking for the bikes. I'd highly recommend the Anturium.

Walked the six blocks to the city center and toured the Musea Nacional de las Culturas. Great museum showing the history Mexico and the Oaxaca area. Rated one of the best regional museums in Mexico.
Traffic is terrible in these cities, so it's best to find a place near where you want to be and park the bikes and walk or taxi. Unless of course you like to be stalled in stop-and-go traffic, with horns blowing continually. I guess they believe that if everyone blows their horns traffic will move along faster.
That said, the people couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Oaxaca is a city you'd want to spend at least a day visiting.
