cool and cloudy
Packed bags seem to be a fitting theme for the past two months.

Six flights on LIAT (three from Grenada to the BVI and three from Grenada to St Maarten -- all on time!!); four flights from Grenada to Oaxaca; a boat delivery from the BVI to Grenada by way of White House Bay St Kitts; and another from St Maarten to Grenada by way of Guadeloupe. Prepared for and rode out tropical storm Bret in Prickly Bay (top winds of 40 knots wind gusts of 48 knots).

This morning it's a lovely 19 degrees with clouds in Oaxaca Mexico. I'm sitting in long pants and a light sweatshirt since 19 degrees actually feels a bit chilly to this Caribbean boy.



Santo Domingo Guzmán

Oaxaca has been a pleasant surprise. Far from the water in the foothills of the Sierra Madre mountains at an elevation of 1555 meters or 5102 feet, it was founded in 1575 and is the largest city in the state of Oaxaca. In the month of the July the highs during the day are only in the mid 20s and the lows at night are in the mid teens. There's street art everywhere as well as museums, churches, and markets. There's been plenty to explore and that's only in the city, not the surrounding villages and archaeological sites.



Chile relleno with frijoles, salad, tortillas, and mole. The food is inexpensive: lunch with a fresh juice was about $4.

What's been most impressive about Oaxaca have been the people and the history. The central city is very old and the people have been friendly and welcoming. Everyone smiles and wishes you a good day.



And finally a sunset from Anse a la Barque, Guadeloupe.

The boat's name comes from a poem by Robinson Jeffers: Evening Ebb The ocean has not been so quiet for a long while; five nightherons Fly shorelong voiceless in the hush of the air Over the calm of an ebb that almost mirrors their wings. The sun has gone down, and the water has gone [...]
