Responsible Tourism Fair in Oaxaca, Mexico
January 17-30, 2010

A group of friends in Oaxaca, Mexico are creating the Responsible Tourism Fair (January 17-30), our 10th event since 2001 and a veritable model of frugality and slow travel.

Visitors have a number of options, including weaver-guided walks in Teotitlán del Valle, photosafaris in public parks and authentic indigenous meals including Caldo de Piedra (Chinanteco), Maatsy (Mixe) and tamales (Zapotec-style). Self-guided treasure hunts asks foodies to try various cheeses, chocolates and mezcal. Photographers are invited to share photos in relevant Flickr Groups with prizes to be awarded at the end of the fair.

If you cannot attend in person, there are many ways to participate. We are inviting our amigos, buddies, friends and mates to create your own event during this time and share the news via Flickr, Twitter, YouTube and all of the cool toys and and tools of Web 2.0 <http: />
