Rocco and I, after a few minor delays getting the car this morning, finally made it to Oaxaca (see pronunciation in title) around three this afternoon. It took us all of thirty minutes to find a hotel and get settled before hitting the streets.  We were starving and went to the closest place we could find, which happened to be the most excellent Casa Oaxaca.  After sampling some local favorites (Mezcal and Molé, ‘natch) we headed out to wander the town with what was left of daylight.  I can totally understand why this is a UNESCO World Heritage city, it is stunningly beautiful, and has a unique atmosphere and scale.  See the initial pics below, more to follow tomorrow.
