I travel once a year to Oaxaca. People often ask why I love Oaxaca city so much. The city is magic and I can't explain why I love it so much. 
During my last trip I met a group of kids that loved my camera and wanted to hold it. I couldn't say no. I made a promise to them and myself I would come back and teach them to work the camera. In October 2020 during the Day of the Dead, we'll try to have The Tiny Todd's Short Short Film Festival with these adorable Zapotec kids.
