Oaxaca de Juárez – a city that…
…extends proudly and majestically in front of you with its generous buildings, ornamented pompously and golden like a Leo. Since who has more knowledge of his own worth than the Leo. And who understands it better to ornament himself than the Leo.
…serves you the most aromatic dishes so full in taste that only the strongest sunbeams could have ripened them. Also, only the warmest, most generous hearts and hands could have prepared them. Because who is warmer, more generous and knows how to shine just as bright as the sun. Exactly! Only Leo.
…courts and woos you on its spacious squares and in its colorful streets. Furthermore invites you to flirt and play and take life in the most generous way just as a Leo always would.
…casts a spell over you unfailingly on it’s Zocalo, the beating heart of the city, where life is roaring all day long and music vibrates through the air from all directions and no-one understands it better to gather a crowd around himself and make a feast out of every day than the Leo.
If Oaxaca were a living creature…
…then it would be a splendid figure with an athletic physique, a broad shoulder girdle and male sexual characteristics like an opulent, greek statue from the antiquity. He would throne on a huge rock like Mufasa with the chin directed towards the sky and the chest stuck out proudly and blazing, golden light would burst out of him and suffuse his kingdom. With a sublime glance and a full, decisive voice he would then call out to the people: “Bring me all your treasures and goods to make me beautiful!”. The inhabitants of his kingdom would be truly devoted to their king and would hallow him on their knees at the foot of the rock and bring him all their treasures and goods while they would burn from his heat and go blind from his light at the same time.
Who will leave the city without having tasted the cheese and cacao will regret it bitterly!
