Oaxaca Diary.

OAXACACOVER

Finally! My last share of photos from the beautiful state of Oaxaca.

Words can’t describe how much I love and adore my country- México, but most importantly how proud I am to be Mexican. States like Oaxaca definitely take my appreciation for my country, people, culture and history to another level. Oaxaca has definitely become one of my top destinations to travel to, get away and enjoy the richness of what they have to offer.

 

Take a peek at what I’m talking about… more than likely,  you’ll fall in love too. Enjoy!

Te quiero mi México lindo y querido!

ps- Also, check out the cool video from my good friend Fernando from one of my favorite Oaxacan restaurants in L.A, Guelaguetza, made of me during our first trip to oaxaca back in December… forgot to share the first time, so here it is (down below)!

Travel: Hierve el Agua.

hiervecover

Hi loves! Here is another set of photos from my trip to Oaxaca a couple of weeks ago. We visited Hierve el Agua, an amazing site where you’ll see a natural infinity pool overlooking the valley and a rock formation that resembles cascades of water, as a day trip and I must say, it’s been the coolest experience to date. 

It took about an hour to arrive to our destination plus some hiking, but once we saw the killer view, we couldn’t help but jump with joy! The windy road was tough but spending the day in Hierve el Agua made everything worth it. It was beautiful.

Made me reflect on life, made me appreciate everything I have and admire the beauty that surrounded us. It gave me such a happy feeling to be there.

Here you’ll see what I’m talking about… enjoy! xohierveelagua.jpg_effected

Natural infinity pool? Heck yes!!!

the Ruins.

RUINSCOVER

Taking you guys back to my beautiful trip to Oaxaca, México with my good friends from Guelaguetza restaurant earlier this month.. We were extremely lucky to have been able to visit the Mitla ruins.

It was such a fascinating feeling to be able to walk through these ruins that are one of the most important archeological sites in the state of Oaxaca. These ruins were occupied and functioned as the main religious center when the Spanish arrived in the 1520s. It was exciting to know a little bit more about these ruins through our friends, Bricia and Fernando, who showed us around and told us a little bit of the Mitla history.

I pranced around and felt very honored and proud to be there. Definitely one of my 2013 highlights!

Stay tuned in next week as I still have so many photos from Oaxaca that I have yet to posts + outfits and diary!
