We coast down and down and down
We make some preparations, do some more Internet and head out in the
afternoon with a sandwich in our bellies to fuel the 14km climb. At
the top we spot a precious open meadow studded with pines and overlooking
the mountains. Here is our sublime campsite where we make a fire and
drink mezcal and enjoy the smells of the mountain forest.
Some serious hill!
We head out in the afternoon to bike through serious hectic traffic
and up a long hill for an hour to the ruins of Monte Alban. The prize
is twofold, we tour the ruins assimilating as much information as
we can, to our surprise the natives who built these temples were Zapotecos
just like our friends in Santa Maria de Yaviche. Prize #2 is the long
descent, I love to go fast and this hill satisfies my need.
Raoul Gatica's interview
Back in Oaxaca we hang out at the CIPO and begin to write our articles,
we conduct a “formal” interview with the semi famous torture
victim Raoul Gatica who is inspired.
Fold it into an unconventional edible
We head out to explore the village. Dirt paths lead between the houses.
The conglomeration of houses looks over a stunning valley. As it rains
every afternoon almost all year round here the colour of the landscape
is bright and rich.
