After attending the Guelaguetza in Oaxaca I was going further to the city of Puebla in the state with the same name. I had a host in a neighboring town, called Cuautlancingo for some days and explored the city from there. On 29th I was changing to a hostel in Cholula, also state of Puebla, for two reasons: I would like to visit the town and I needed some time for writing my blog. In a hostel it is always easier to get that time.

Though I was working on it yesterday evening – right after the check in and was only out for a meal. I also used the most of the day this Monday for the blog. I actually has updated the blog until 25th July. For the rest of the month you have to wait one more day or maybe a couple of days longer, because I am very hungry now.

Enjoy by following the links above and stay tuned!

New Notebook

To serve you better and for not spending all my time on the Internet, I bought a new notebook today. It will be much easier now to write my blog. Unfortunately I had to set up my notebook as well as managing my photos. I hope that I can work with my blog tomorrow after the tour to Mitla.

The following subjects you can wait for:

Tour to the Sumidero Canyon, Misol Ha and Agua Azul – Done! – Scroll down to Palenque and look for the text about the tour.

Tehuantepec in Oaxaca – Done! Tehuantepec was my first place in Oaxaca.

City of Oaxaca including tour to Monte Alban and tour to Mitla. – Done! Scroll down.


Stay tuned as always – thank you!


Tehuantepec is a minor town in the Mexican state of Oaxaca. When I heart about the earthquake in Mexico last year, I heart about Mexico City and the Mexican state of Puebla, but I do not remember, that they also were talking about Oaxaca and Chiapas (San Cristobal de las Casas).

Now I have reached the state of Oaxaca and here are the signs of the earthquake still to see. In the home I am now – with a CS host, the ceiling did not make it all the way, but they are quite lucky, because they still can live here. There are buildings in town, which are totally damaged. The photo above is taken in my hosts home. He told me (I had not even asked him for it), that I was allowed to take photos.

I cannot see any router for Internet here, though you have to wait for more travel reports for some days. By the way, earthquakes happen here daily, most are so small, one did not feel them. Earthquakes between 4 and 5 points on the “Scale of Richter”, I was told, are expected once a day. Because I will be for a while in “the earthquake area”, I will daily send an email to my children and post a message on twitter, but I believe in my Guardian angel and will not change my route.

Stay tuned as usual 😀
