After our descent, we'll head over to our friend Josefina's casa for a proper brunch made by her and her two daughters. We'll gather & connect over a traditional Oaxacan meal. While you're in a food coma, we'll walk down to the family's textile workshop, where abuela will show us how she's been looming wool since she was 9. Josefina will show us how they naturally dye the wool with plant materials before they turn the yarn into rugs, blankets, scarfs, wall hanging and more.
Post workshop we will head to Geranamo's mezcal distillery, just a 20 minute drive away, where he'll take us on his agave farm and share with us the ancient process of cooking & producing the infamous beverage.
