During my first week in Oaxaca this year, it seems every day there have been amazingly diverse cultural or poiltical happenings .

Last Saturday afternoon in the Zocalo, among many happenings, there was a clown entertaining people next to the Red Cross teaching artificial respiration in front of the Cathedral — saving bodies in front of the place where they save souls.

Sunday at Santo Domingo Museum was a gallery opening for the work of Lola Cueto, Mexican painter, printmaker, puppet designer and puppeteer. Oh yes, and she made beautiful tapestries.

    • Thanks, Lee. The clown was fun. I got in close with my LX3 and he turned and began performing for me/the camera!
