Perhaps better known for beach holidays, Mexico is beginning to attract people to the mountains. This article by Joanna Moorhead from the Guardian dated 3 May 2008 describes the Tourist Yu'u scheme based in villages in the state of Oaxaca. You stay in modern timber lodges, the community gets the benefit, you get to see something of traditional life in the mountains of Mexico, and you can hire a guide to take you trekking to the best viewpoints.
Now Laura Milkins is walking along "the longest avenue in the world", Avenida de los Insurgentes, gathering people's stories along the way - follow the links below to find out more and connect through to her own website.
