Seahawks Sunday in Oaxaca

It seemed only appropriate that we begin Superbowl (or Seahawk) Sunday with a visit to Monte Alban (án), a Zapotec civic-ceremonial site used between about 500BC and 800AD, all located at the top of a good sized hill they flattened 2500 years ago.  The space was used for various rituals, including a ball court, where, evidently, the winner earned the right to be sacrificed.

We returned to Oaxaca to scope out where we would watch the Superbowl ritual.  This weekend happens to be a holiday weekend as  Monday they celebrate el Dia de la Constitucion.  American Football is popular here and the bars were full.  We found, though, the perfect place with even a Portuguese Water Dog out front.
