Drag Racing 1/4 mile in Ciudad Acuna, Coahuila, Mexico

 

 

 

 

Have you heard of the unique, traditional, southern Mexican state of Oaxaca? It’s famous for its blend of indigenous cultures, artisan handcrafts, and delicious, mouth-watering cuisine. There is no need to travel far but just across the border to the Plaza in downtown Acuña.  
Wrapping up the weekend of June 7th and 8th, Oaxacan artists, chefs, and shopkeepers line the western edge of the Plaza to sell their pieces of Mexican tradition. This is a fantastic opportunity to try Oaxacan quesillo, a mild, salty cheese that is a hundred times better than the mozzarella-style “Oaxacan” cheese sold in local grocery stores. Looking for clothing and pottery? Traditional cotton shirts, blouses, and dresses from Mitla are colorfully displayed along with black pottery from San Bartolo Coyotepec. If you’re hungry, wow, this is the place to be: Crema de Mezcal, a liquor taken in shots with many different flavors (orange, nut); Nieves de Oaxaca, Oaxacan ice cream in fruit, nut and liquor flavors; tlayudas, a large tortilla toasted with a layer of black beans, quesillo, and tasajo: tasty beef grilled to perfection.  
For a must-see Sunday night, attend the Guelagetza in the Plaza at 7 p.m.. The Oaxacan Guelagetza is a colorful, visual phenomenon of dance and culture. Each region within the state has its own traditional dance, dress and music to dazzle your eyes and ears.  
Stop by and see what all the Oaxacan fuss is about!
