After lunch we return to the hostel for an afternoon siesta and tried to plan our next couple of days. We venture out in the afternoon for some specialty chocolate oaxaqueño - hot chocolate and meet two nice old american ladies. We are seated on the roof terrace and have great views of the mountains and city, then the rains decide to come and spoil the fun. The drizzle turned into ...
