My first day in Oaxaca was after I opted to take a six month leave of absence from my corporate job. I had wanted to leave my job for the past three years and finally made the hasty decision to take a leave of absence. I picked a place on the map, bought a ticket and decided to head there for a month with no idea where I would go after that. My hotel was booked for the first few nights and the rest was up to me. My first day walking around Oaxaca, I was shell shocked, but taking in the beautiful sky and streets. I was lost, but only beginning to find myself once again.
