    Of course be careful of the water you drink.

    Just make sure you eat from the right street vendors. Or else you could get quite sick. But don't throw out the idea of eating from street vendors all together. That's where some of the best food comes from.

    And for you women, careful of the men that ask you for the time and then follow you around the store!

    Remember altitude & equatorial sun

    by artpaws Written Jan 3, 2003

    Oaxaca is in a high valley at over 5,000 feet. You may, like me, need 2-3 days of easy activity until you acclimatize. Don't forget you are probably much closer to the sun: both in altitude and nearness to the equator. So, wear a hat & remember sunscreen.
