As a dear friend says, "Oaxaca is a magical place." I fully agree. I love its colors, warmth, and laid-back atmosphere so much that I came here to do doctoral dissertation research and never left (although yes, I DID finish the degree, thank goodness!). Although I'm no longer a short-term traveler or a limited-term researcher (I teach at the local university these days), I manage every now and then find the same sense of inspiration and peace that originally impressed me with Oaxaca. I find it in an intricately carved door hidden on a small side street, a vibrant flowering tree growing out of a decaying building, a nice cold ice cream cone made of basil and cheese (sounds gross, but it blew my mind away), and the feeling of sunshine on my back and a view of the towering mountains to the north.
I hope you'll find something here that woos you just as it did me.
