I looked for you, bixa, in each photo but didn't find you. The photo of the women with baskets of flowers on their heads looks familiar.
I finally got to read the full article and see the pictures. Thanks to all who offered help.
It makes me proud to know that probably every anyporter could recognize the places mentioned and shown in the pictures. It's a pretty good article, even though I remain perplexed by her reference to "the inventive advertising posters for which Oaxaca is known". Perhaps she is referring to wall art? Also, her list of restaurants is pedestrian, for which she can surely be forgiven, having been here as a tourist and with small children in tow. Of the ones she mentioned, the only one that tempts me is Los Danzantes. La Catedral is beyond mundane, and Itanoní remains suspect in my mind because of what I feel is its hipster foodie imprimatur. Early on in its fame, I remember reading a review by some foreign visitor emoting over the fact that the place has plastic chairs and oilcloth tablecloths -- sooooooooo authentic. That describes over 90% of the eateries in this city and good local food is to be found in all kinds of places that will never get written up in Chowhound. Possibly it does have the best Oaxacan food in town, but I know of too many cases where a dish from a market fonda is much better than the same thing from an upscale restaurant or a place written up in the foreign press.
Bixa, I read a brief article on another of your city's fantastic celebrations which rejoiced in the name of "The night of the Radishes". Have you ever covered this for anyport? Is there a story that goes with this or just the radish growers having a sale?
