The beauty of old things in Oaxaca

As I walked around town yesterday (the weather was much nicer… in the upper 70s instead of low 90s), I was struck by the beauty of everything old.

Everything from the bright colors of buildings, to the colonial architecture, to street art and graffiti. It’s all beautiful.

I know this is not Japan, but it’s beautiful in a way that reminds me of the Japanese concept of “wabi-sabi.

Haven’t learned the names of the famous landmarks yet. Just strolling and snapping photos.
