Postcard-Late to the Party in Oaxaca

Walking on the streets of Oaxaca City is a must. And like any Mexican destination, visitors will find surprises. Good surprises. Surprises that force a smile, surprises that create curiosity, and surprises that display the colorful culture of Mexico. One afternoon in Oaxaca I witnessed one such surprise.

late to the party...

During my stroll of the streets of Oaxaca, I suddenly noticed a person in costume running on the streets of the colonial city. I stopped and captured the moment. I enjoyed my time in Oaxaca, but for some reason I tend to think whoever was dressed in this costume might have even had a better day if he wasn’t too late for the party.

Stay adventurous, Craig

    Fantastic capture!
    Takes talent to run in such a getup. Intrigued by the costume design – have you been able to research the event?

      Good call, I haven’t researched anything, but it often seems like there is a festival, a celebration most everyday in Latin America… stay adventurous, Craig
