El Zócalo, Oaxaca, Mexico

El Zocalo © Erin Lau 2010

The Zócalo, or main plaza, in Oaxaca was peaceful and social in the days after the national Gubernatorial election of June 2010.The place was completely cleared of protesters and only a few stalls remained. It was back to the social life of lazy afternoons. They completely re-planted everything except the trees within two days, so it was an utter transformation. I wish I had also been able to sketch the protestors and their encampments, but I never got the chance.
