Another travel option

Puebla and Oaxaca


February 9 – 16, 2011 – 8 days, 7 nights

 By popular demand, Life Long Learning will be repeating the trip to Puebla and Oaxaca. I hope you’ll be able to join us! These excursions are a great way to meet new friends and see other parts of the country. The itinerary is not too strenuous but participants need to be aware that road conditions and other factors sometimes necessitate long bus rides and meal delays. Taking snacks and drinks onto the bus is recommended.
