Youth Congress, Day #2, Part 2

We left Oaxaca City on Tuesday morning and headed over the mountains. It is a trip of 120 miles which usually takes about 6 hours, because the roads are so bad. We had a little vehicle problem which held us up for a few hours.

Piling back in for the rest of the trip.

We arrived at San Gabriel, Mixtepec, Oaxaca at 10 p.m. They fed us chicken and rice soup, tortillas, and sweet bread. In this picture, you can see a girl pouring horchata. It is a drink made by boiling rice and adding sugar and cinnamon.
