Unexpected Rest Day
We accompanied Alfonso and Alicia today to a remote village in the mountains. We met and hung out with a local family for a little bit, read by a river, and ate wonderful homemade food. The mole (MOL-ay), a nutty sauce which Oaxaca is famous for, was the most delicious thing I think I have ever tasted, yet I was unable to finish my bowl because it was so spicy!
