One of the shops selling Mezcal just outside of the market
My final full day in Oaxaca I decided to relax, enjoy the breakfast with great tasting eggs and coffee and visit the markets again. In the markets I explored the stalls checking out all of the local goods they had to sell, including all the grains and spices. Oaxaca is known for their Mezcal, so I visited one of the larger Mezcal stores and asked to taste a few different bottles of Mezcal. After three small glasses and tasters Id found the Mezcal I liked, a bottle of añejo with a darker brown colour, smoother than some of the other Mezcal and richer as it had been aged for 2 years. I picked up
a bottle as well as some other goods in the market. After the market, I visit the bus ticket office and purchased my bus ticket to Puebla for the following morning before spending the afternoon in a local café called “Nuevo mundo” (meaning new world) for a coffee, fresh orange juice and after that a local Oaxacan dish called a Tlayuda. It was like a tortilla, crispy base with mushrooms, tomato and cheese on top. It was delicious, and possibly the best food I’d tried all trip, thanks to the freshness of the ingredients. I returned to the hostel to drop off my shopping and relax for a couple of hours on the roof terrace. Oaxaca has many places with roof terraces and great views over the city. By the evening I decided to visit a local restaurant and meal for the end of my Oaxaca experience.
