Subject: Oaxaca
Oaxaca is a wonderful destination, and the prettiest capital city in Mexico, I think. The city itself is very interesting, and the two ruin areas outside it (opposite directions, as I recall) are interesting and educational. You want to book a tour there with a guide, as you will learn much more than way. One ruin area is Monte Alban, dating to 600 BC; the other is Mitla, about an hour from town and dating to the lst century BC.

The Saturday Indian Market in Oaxaca is great.
