Today Ernesto, our driver here at the Casa Ollin, drove a group of us to the South to visit the Friday Market at Ocotlan. We arrived around 10 in the morning and the place was jumping. It is first and foremost a regional agricultural market. Blocks of the town are occupied by vendors selling produce from around the region.

Ocotlan is the home of the Oaxacan artist Rodolfo Morales. One of his murals of Oaxacan life fills the front entry of the municipal building
and there is a museum of his work in a restored convent adjacent to the town square.
