I work hard during most of the year. But when the winter arrives, my wife and I are ready for a vacation. For five years now, we have been heading down to Oaxaca in Mexico. Oaxaca is both a state and a city and we spend time in both. We usually go over to the beach but we spend much of the time in Oaxaca City. We have found a great place to stay, where we feel welcome, comfortable and safe. Therefore, in the video, I talk a lot about La Casa de Mis Recuerdos B&B. For anyone who is English speaking, William or Nora at Recuerdos can translate for you if need be. William was raised in the U.S. so his English is, at least, as good as mine. Nora Valencia, William's wife, has a cooking course in Oaxaca that is called Alma de mi Tierra. Anyone who wants to learn how to make moles, tamales and traditional Oaxacan dishes needs to check out Nora's class. I describe it, along with photos, near the end of the video. I hope anyone who is looking for a nice warm weather vacation will find this video helpful and interesting.
