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 😀
