Thursday, November 2nd
Today after breakfast I decided to take one more walk to the Templo de Santo Tomas Xochimilco,
Roaming around Oaxaca can be so cool.
Here is some of the gang hangin' in the gardens. The shot was taken from on top of the structure pictured below--a man made rain forest that is designed to grow plants but save water.
Next we went the Museo Textil de Oaxaca (Oaxaca Textile Museum). The gorgeous textiles in the main exhibit were by Luciana Corres. There also were quilts by Bill Stecher and an exhibition of La Imagineria de Las Molas.
The picture above seemed cool until...
I then meet Marilyn, Teresa and Kristen for some shopping, then went to the hotel to pack.
Tonight the group is heading out to the cemetery at San Felipe. Some of us went in Dia de los Muertos makeup.
The families hire sand painters to decorate their families' graves
When we got back from the cemetery it was time for the farewell dinner at Catedral Restaurante.

So all that is left is to thank Colleen Darling for her organizational abilities, Michael deMeng for his superior teaching skills, and all my fellow travelers for another great experience.
