Oaxaca Pictures

We had a balcony with a Dr. Seuss tree at Casa Pereyra. 
Women carry all kinds of things on their heads. She's got padded boards--might be kneelers for pews. 
She's got a load of garlic.
This is a giant tlayuda in the municipal building. A tlayuda is a great big crispy tortilla--think small pizza--filled with--whatever. But this tlyauda is the biggest in the world--the sign even says it's in the Guinness Book of World Records. It's about seven feet across. In the center is a rendition of the Tule tree, which is nearby and the biggest tree in Latin America. 
It's got scenes from Oaxaca history. Tlayudas are cooked right on the coals and somehow are both chewy and crispy. We're going out later for our last meal, and it's going to be at the Tlayuda stand. But we have to wait because it doesn't open until 9 p.m. And then it's open until 4 a.m. Mealtimes have yet to make sense here. 
Too bad dogs can't read. 
Steve took the pictures of me. Here, looking at the sunset.
