On September 27 – World Tourism Day – Planeta.com and Becari Spanish Language School host a free, public, multilingual photo safari and slow adventure in Llano Park. The city safari is great way to link cultures and everyone’s invited!
There are opportunities to learn a bit about Mexico’s history and cultural and environmental diversity. The conversation is mostly en español, but we also use English and include words and phrases in the local indigenous languages including Zapotec, Chinantec and Mixtec.
The Oaxaca Photo Safari is a slow stroll in Llano Park with the objective of learning the names of indigenous and exotic trees in the park and tips on using social media, including geolocation services Foursquare and Gowalla and the popular Facebook and Flickr sites. We will also socialize face-to-face in a friendly lo-tech manner with games and quizzes. Bring your camera or smartphone, drinking water and comfy shoes!
Foodie Tip: If you bring your appetite, there are recommended comals in the park for tasty memelas and empanadas de amarillo! For more a la carte suggestions, check out the Planeta.com Guide to What to eat in Oaxaca.
