Yep, decision made. We’re going to use the delivery delay opportunity to visit Oaxaca MX, a place we’ve been wanting to go. Oaxaca is the land of mezcal & roasted grasshoppers & moles. There are 7 types of moles and we plan to try them all. Mezcal is the local drink so I’m sure we’ll have ample opportunity to sample them about town, and plus hopefully in the mezcal distillery capital of the world, Metatlan, a village 45 minutes outside of Oaxaca. Also around Oaxaca are ancient ruins, a petrified waterfall, local open-air markets and other sites to explore.
It’s a fairly short air travel day from Guatemala City to Oaxaca MX via Mexica City. The travel leg from here to Guate City (and back) is the longer leg time-wise with construction delays, traffic, etc. So…one day to Guate City, next day AeroMexico flights to Oaxaca, several days there exploring the area before returning. A bonus of our MX stay is that it resets our passport time in CA4 countries, of which Guatemala & Honduras are two. And who knows, perhaps our batteries and fridge will be waiting for us upon return.
