Mariana Vasquez Jimenez (Oaxaca, Mexico)

Hi everybody,

My name is Mariana and I am from a beautiful city called Oaxaca, it is situated southwest in Mexico. I came to Willamette University to be the Spanish language assistant for the school year 2006-2007, so if you are studying Spanish it is for sure we are going to meet, if not it will be also nice to meet you.

I would like to share some information about my city with you. Oaxaca is the fifth largest state in Mexico. It is rich in history, nature, and culture. Oaxaca was also the settlement of two very important indigenous cultures: the Mixteca and Zapoteca. Today, we have still preserved 16 indigenous languages throughout the region. Unfortunately, nowadays we are facing a terrible strike in Oaxaca and this carries out social and political problems. Nevertheless, It is still beautiful.

I will try to provide some web links so that you will know what is going on in Mexico. If you want to know something about Mexican culture or my city, just email me.

Check this link!
