Oaxaca flickrmeet

Oaxaca City, Mexico – Oaxacans and visitors are invited to share photos of trees in Oaxaca the first week of April 2008. The innovative Flickrmeet takes place April 1-5 in Oaxaca City and nearby villages in the Central Valleys and Sierra Juárez.


Flickrmeets provide an opportunity for members of Flickr to get together. Activities are arranged on the spot. For details, consult the poster and keep an eye on the Oaxaca Wikispace.

Oaxaca’s Flickrmeet is a spin-off of the 2008 Rural Tourism Fair that took place in January. The fair was documented in a number of videos on YouTube, the most popular of which showed travelers looking for ahuehuetes in the town of Santa Maria del Tule. The Tule video has been viewed more than 2,000 times.


Photos are welcome in the following groups:

Arboles de Oaxaca (Oaxaca Trees)

Forum on Latin American Forests
