Hombres, today I am headed down to Mexico City for a two week trip of exploration and adventure! Next week I’ll be in Oaxaca and from there I’m going back to Chicago to visit friends & family. The feelings I have right now are impossible to explain….but it is my first trip into the heart of the country and I can’t wait for the food, the crafts, the people, the zocalos, the music, the shopping, the markets, the buzz of the largest city in the Western Hemisphere and Oaxaca City, the epicenter of Mexican craft traditions!!! I’m going to get some work done with the girls from Job & Boss, Tessa from The Textile Utility, and the lovely Carlie. Here are some photos from the Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art of some of the artisans and work I’m looking forward to seeing and learning about while I’m there. If anyone has suggestions….let me know! See you in a few weeks!
