So…you’re staying in a little hotel in the center of Oaxaca, and you want to know
“where’s good to eat??”…
This is the list we’ll give you at the hotel (with regular updates, of course).
We have some of their menus in the hotel…but we’re always anxious to see what they’re up to… So if you try one of them, could you please snap a photo of your favorite part of the menu and send it to ME (firstname.lastname@example.org) I’ll be collecting and posting.
