that Janet has visited Mexico so it has been quite an adventure.
We arrived in Mexico City early Saturday morning and after passing the night at the Marriott Hotel at the airport, we took a taxi to our hotel on the Zocalo of Mexico City. The square is the third largest in the world after Tianamen Square and Red Square. Travelling in Mexico is a wonderful experience because every person in the hospitality industry that we have met has helped us enormously. The bellmen rolled our suitcases for two or three blocks to get us a taxi. It is very difficult for cabs or
town cars to stop on the Zocalo.

|the Ethnobotanic Garden|
I have visited this garden many times. The guide, Carol, a retired anthropology professor has been leading the tour for 16 years and is knowledgeable about the endemic plants of Oaxaca.

This is the first time that my friend has visited Oaxaca so we are spending our time visiting some of the churches, markets and galleries of the city.
