The drive from Mexico City to Oaxaca is about six hours long and I've never been able to read in cars/buses, which left me plenty of time to stare out the window and watch the passing scenery. Most of the land between these two large cities is sparsely inhabited, but even so, drivers need to eat, and every so often we would pass a roadside eatery. I was intrigued by these restaurants seemingly in the middle of nowhere and took pictures when I could. Here's a collection of photos of the eateries we passed on the drive.
