A big thank you to the nice méxican couple who had allowed to take these pictures.
The canadian couple leanne and calvin offer a family place to travelers. Actually the backyard is the overlander oasis and 4-5 smaller rigs will fit in. Leanne and calvin´s sleeping room is an old greyhound bus which already had run 4 million miles and the bus is parked in the middle of the house. Many overlanders who are traveling between north- and south america will visit oaxaca and therefore the overlander osasis is the place to be if you want to listen to traveler stories .
also calvin is a skilled mechanic who had repaired our webasto heating system and other stuff. If he can´t do it by his own he will recommend the right people. If you come to oaxaca, please make your reservation in advance so they can squeeze you in.

After cortés had done a massacre in cholula, he crossed over this 3700m high pass to advance to tenochititlán (today méxico city).
To be grounded up there is not funny, what we could experience by ourselves. In the evening we pulled a pick-up truck out of the road trench (they already had build up their bivouac) and in the next morning our car didn´t start. In the elevation of 12000 feet the motor probably hadn´t enough oxigen and it was night, until help came. A helpful mexican guy had brought a mechanic from méxico city and the starterspray breathed new life into the benz.
