As a World Heritage Site, Oaxaca is a superb tourist destination with history, culture, food, art, and crafts. For ancient ruins Oaxaca has pre-Columbian sites. Oaxaca is rich in colonial era architecture. The unique cuisine is home to mole, chocolate, and mescal. Oaxacan art boasts 3 great Mexican painters, Tamayo, Morales, and Toledo. Crafts include rug weaving, woven fabrics and embroidery, jewelry, pottery, woodcarvings, and basketry. I'll introduce Oaxaca with words, links and photos.

El día del amor y la amistad
Oaxaca has many language schools which have their own social networks. Many provide activities to help integrate students with life in Oaxaca and provide additional opportunities to practice. One school, Spanish Magic, celebrated Valentine's Day with a program of dance. There are just a few photos here and more at my picasa web album.
