A little about Playa Zipolite, The Beach of the Dead . . .

Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean. A little bit about my favorite little get-away on this small world of ours.

Zipolite, a sweaty 30-minute walk west from Puerto Angel, brings you to Playa Zipolite and another world. The feeling here is 1970's - Led Zep, Marley, and scruffy gringos.

A long, long time ago, Zipolite beach was usually visited by the Zapotecans...who made it a magical place. They came to visit Zipolite to meditate, or just to rest.

Recently, this beach has begun to receive day-trippers from Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido, giving it a more TOURISTY feel than before.

Most people come here for the novelty of the nude beach, yoga, turtles, seafood, surf, meditation, vegetarians, discos, party, to get burnt by the sun, or to see how long they can stretch their skinny budget.

I post WWW Oaxaca, Mexico, Zipolite and areas nearby information. Also general budget, backpacker, surfer, off the beaten path, Mexico and beyond, information.

REMEMBER: Everyone is welcome at Zipolite.

Personal Item vs. Carry-On: What’s the Difference?
Jamie Ditaranto

The definition of a personal item has always been unclear. We’ve all seen passengers rolling their large carry-ons and carrying equally large bags and backpacks on as their “personal item.” The general rule is that your personal item must fit under the seat in front of you, but in my experience, I’ve never seen anyone questioned about their personal item.
For years, personal items have flown mostly under the radar, but in this new bare fares world—in which airlines are offering cheaper base fares but charging for carry-ons—more and more people will be traveling with nothing but a personal item.
When you’re traveling on the cheap and trying to pack as much as possible in a very limited amount of space, knowing the rules is vital. Here’s a look at the personal item and free carry-on limitations for 10 major U.S. airlines.
