 I couldn't agree more.;o) Learn some Spanish, though.
Everyone is friendly, including coffee growers,and finding
beautiful coffee farms to visit isn't hard(outside of the
rainy season), but almost nobody I know in Oaxaca speaks
English.

When visiting some of the border cities, you may be laughed at and ridicule=

the surrounding area was different.  The people were all very friendly and
helpful.  They appreciated any attempt I made at speaking Espanol.  They
were patient with my ability (or lack thereof) to speak their language.  I
think the important things to know are please, thank you, donde esta el ban=

(Where is the bathroom?), quantas questo esta?  (this may be wrong, but it'=

something like "How much for this?"). Get some understanding of the
numbers.  I wish I had the time to learn spanish...  I really want to visit
Mexico again this year!
