Oaxaca

After a few days of real oceanside holiday-mode days it was quite hard to leave Puerto Escondido. The drive from there to Oaxaca was promising a lot of steep up and downhill sections with dramatic curves. You have to be cautious when Google Maps estimates a drive time of over 7 hours for 250 kms. Not willing to push our ottllr the kids' stomachs too far we decided to break up the twisty drive into two days. We picked a stopover at around halfway at San Pedro Juchatengo.

Just across the hotel (which was small, clean and new for 400 pesos) we ate at the "Jumadores" fo lr gringo prices (600 pesos for quesadillas and a soup) for lunch. They also had bamboo chicken (aka roasted iguana) but we skipped.

Then for dinner we drove a few hundred meters to another small taco shop where all tables were full with locals. Much better food (excellent tacos al carne) for 300 pesos.

The next morning we continued to Oaxaca and arrived early enough to stop for a short walk and lunch before getting to our air'bnb. We again picked a small local place with a simple menu (delicious chicken milanese and a soup plus a drink) for 75 pesos per person.

The coffee after lunch was up to the expectations. Brilliant.
