STREET ART WALK
Oaxaca is a magical city. The skies are deep blue in the heart of the valley. Women in embroidered huipiles, colourful houses, flowers on the trees, parades, and local people garnish the streets. And then there’s the street art.
We will be walking around 3 neighbourhoods of the city visiting interesting spots, art workshops, and of course… street art. They are everywhere: big murals, stencils, posters. Oaxacan Artists are abundant and very talented. It’s like visiting an outdoor museum.

During the ride we will have time to share a local and organic drink or snack.
