Exploring the Sights of Oaxaca, Finding Your Best Self
Mary Stelletello, Founder of Vista Leadership Academy, won an Editor’s Choice nomination from the Mexico Travel Photography Facebook Group. She took the winning picture below while on a visit to an amaranth field in Oaxaca with the Academy’s partner organization Puente a la Salud Comunitaria. Amaranth is not only beautiful—it provides a fantastic nutritional source for many in the region.

In just a few weeks, our inaugural class of Vistaleras will experience Oaxaca first hand in the 6-day leadership retreat. Another photo selected in the Editor’s Choice came from Moises Garcia Guzman y de Mendoza. It shows several variations on a traditional Oaxacan apron, all of which can be found at the Tlacolula Market outside Oaxaca. The Academy participants will visit this market on our first full day in Oaxaca. This experience will be a great introduction to Oaxacan colors, crafts, cuisines, and cultures.
