Originally published via inTravel Magazine: Owing to its inaccessible mountainous terrain, the conquistadors and other would-be conquerors have had a hell of a time over the centuries taking and holding this Southern Mexico region. In that regard, it's much like Afghanistan.
Great article. Street art in Oaxaca clearly relates to the revolutionary spirit which continues to live. Leftist Mexico, however, should not be confused with the faux left of the U.S. The left in Mexico is clearly pro people's rights and specifically indigenous rights. Over 90 % of Mexican people have indigenous blood. Mexican revolutionaries would not see Antifa as a legitimate ally.
Wonderful area! And the people are just as colourful and authentic as their art. Never mind THE BEST coffee in all the world. 😁
Does this mean you are in Mexico now ?
