Here is an excerpt:

"Combined with the city’s long-established studio art scene, a vibrant cafe culture, a mescal-fueled night life and one of Mexico’s most exciting regional cuisines, Oaxaca is as cosmopolitan as it is architecturally stunning."

The author of the article had a fantastic time, seeing an alley full of different smoked meats for sale, a burgeoning street art scene, lots of colorful sights and cuisine, and more. The city is clearly an incredible backdrop for language immersion!
