Relaxing with Odin

We recently visited Villa Loohvana B&B in San Agustín, Etla, located about 20 km from Oaxaca central. We spent the day with the owner, and our friend, Michelle Tommi. Paul became best buds with one of Michelle’s dogs, her Great Dane, Odin.

So, a Ham and a Clown are on a Bus…

When we are in Mexico, we don’t have a car. Buses and cabs are plentiful and inexpensive. You never know what you will see on a bus — indigenous women with native dress and braided hair, a guy with a guitar playing and singing for tips, an evangelist preaching the gospel, or even a clown. …
