tbd based on the day.
Transportation: taxi/collectivos between airport and town; during our stay provided by an area tour guide, Eric
Ramirez, of Zapotec heritage, born and raised in the area, educated in California.

: we will start meeting as a group in January, once a month. Part of our discussions will include
making choices about projects to take on at the two different sites. At the school we can come up with one big
project, or we can offer presence and assistance each day with ongoing work there. When we start meeting we
will have a description of sample projects done by other visiting groups such as ours, and from there we can
adapt or generate our own project. For work in the area pueblo we have a couple of choices from Eric. While it
might seem easier to have all of these decisions already made so we just need to be told what to do, this
decision making will help us engage in a deeper manner.
1. International Passport required. On the plane you will receive a visa form to fill out as well; you will
need to retain that form to exit the country.
2. Vaccinations and medications: when traveling to developing countries you should have up to date
tetanus, typhoid, cholera, and Hepatitis B (a series of three shots) vaccinations. No need for malaria medication. Pharmacies/drugstores are common in Oaxaca, but bringing pain reliever, Immodium, Pepto Bismal, and dramamine are all advisable. Recommended that each person have a script filled for Cipro, the ‘traveler’s antibiotic.’ Hand sanitizer.
3. You will be doing a lot of walking, so having comfortable, broken in shoes is a must.
Expenses and Money Needed: Cost will be about $2,000/person. Our Diocese has matching funds available, so per person money needed to be raised will be $1,000. We have access to a smaller grant, and some outreach funds. Our hope is to have frequent flyer hours donated to help with air fare costs, which will be the highest cost for the trip. Food is relatively
inexpensive; an ample meal for dinner can be around $10, although some nights you/we might want to eat a bit more upscale. During our preparation time we will find out about the various crafts people in the area which will determine how much discretionary funds you might want available to buy souvenirs and gifts. For at least this first trip we hope that money is not an obstacle for participation. Our intention is to forge connections with people there so that we will be making return trips. Funding for future trips will have to be determined then.
