Close to the city of Oaxaca is the ancient Zapoteca city of Mitla. This is a great excursion for anyone interested in one of the cradles of civilization of Meso-America.
Mitla Oaxaca

I have a feeling that the relief designs on that pyramids wall was actually inspired by some blanket peddlers whose wares are usually displayed at Oaxaca's market.........Or could it be the other way around?.....

Yes, we bought some weavings with geometric designs at the local Mitla market. It was my wife's introduction to the concept of bargaining down the price, having never been out of the U.S.A. She looks 'local' because of her asian ancestry, so an amusing triangle of bartering developed. The vendors spoke to her in Spanish (she speaks only English) and she turned to me. Instructing her to shake her head, I replied, "La Señora me dice que el precio es demasiado alto." On and on we went.
