Signs from around Oaxaca

Street signs, graffiti and other written snapshots of life are one of the best parts of traveling to new places.

We head off to Italy and India tomorrow morning, so for my last post about Mexico, I wanted to share a few of my favorites.

First, we have the lost parrot. I would add that the reward money is in pesos, so it’s about $225.
