It's very gratifying when we hear that our insider's guide to Oaxaca, Viva Oaxaca, really added to someone's visit to our favorite city. Here's the most recent such comment:
I wanted to write and thank you for publishing Viva Oaxaca. My partner and I stayed 10 days in Oaxaca in the beginning of October, and used your book constantly. It was such a pleasure to read, and the recommendations for everything (meals, parks, shopping, markets) were accurate and clear. I think we had a better vacation than we would have had if we relied on Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor. Your love and enthusiasm for Oaxaca is contagious, and appreciated. The things we enjoyed the most were the guided tour of the Botanical Garden, the Tamayo Museum, and eating lunch at Itanoni. We might have missed out on the Botanical Garden and Itanoni if we didn't have your book compelling us to go there. We were last in Oaxaca in 1992 for the radish festival/Christmas holiday, and being there again felt both familiar and different. It was nice to be in Oaxaca during the off season (although we were the only guests at our hotel some nights). It is still charming and fun and cosmopolitan all at the same time.
I don't normally write fan letters, but it made me wish for a book like yours every
time we travel.
