Sights from the campo

These guys are moliendo (grinding?) sugar cane to get the juice out. The oxen turn the wooden thingy and the man in the middle sticks the cane in, and you can see the juice coming out. They later boil the juice all day, and then it solidifies into what they call, dulce. This is pure brown sugar. It's pretty yummy in coffee.

I'm crossing a deep river on the horsey in the rain!

Ana and her friend are carrying firewood to the house to cook for us.

This is Julia. She told me she was ugly when I asked her if I could take a picture with her, but look how cute she is!!
