A Nice Day!
By Sandra Ríos
To start the day with good humor, we suggest a walk, jog, or run around Parque Juárez where you can breathe the fresh air and admire the lush vegetation of the park.
After exercising, have breakfast at the Café de la Parroquia, a traditional restaurant in this city. On the menu they have huevos rancheros in a delicious red sauce or tasty green enchiladas for you to enjoy. In addition, on arrival you receive a basket of bread to savor with their homemade jam and tasty coffee, which they refill throughout your meal. All this occurs in a courtyard with a beautiful central fountain and birds that visit looking for breadcrumbs.

During the afternoon you can go shopping and visit some fun and funky shops like the Bendita showroom, where you will find original jewelry, clothing, and items for your home from Mexican designers. A very original shop is Mixta, where you will find furniture, jewelry, clothing, and many more surprises. Another store to visit is Colectivo Mexicano with offerings in clothing and accessories for both men and women.

And to end your day with the same good mood, taste the best artisanal mezcal at Salón Oaxaca. Accompany your Oaxacan mezcal with some toasted grasshoppers or the famous Oaxacan tlayuda. Ask if they have a special of the day.
