Oaxaca Highway Update
The new highway project in Oaxaca (Wa-Ha-Ka) state has been at the tip of our tongues for some time now. This new highway will connect the inland state capital, Oaxaca City to the coastal cities of Puerto Escondido and Huatulco. Stated for completion at the end of 2015, the highway will decrease travel times and increase coastal real estate values.

The Cyclists Are Out In Full Force!
It’s already May and this is spring time, in Alberta. There are daffodils blooming in my backyard, and I have been riding on the road each weekend since the beginning of April. The last few weeks have seen some major weather changes for the better and I have found riding on weekends enjoyable after as usual… very long winter.

How I became a prolific blogger and learned to get beyond school essays
Some people think I am a journalist. My friends ask ME how I can possibly write as much as I do (on my blog), given all the responsibilities that I have. That’s because I have published (so far) more than 1,000 blogs on my web site. My REAL day job is as computer programmer for a big insurance company in Edmonton and blogging is just my hobby, which I discovered very late in my life…

The relaxed beach town of Mazunte
So, we left beautiful Huatulco early in the morning. Today we drove west to Puerto Escondido. After Pochutla driving west on a coastal highway 200, there was a turnoff for small beach town Mazunte at San Antonio intersection. Vera wanted to see the turtles, so I made the left turn.
