Perhaps the best activity during my stay with Minerva, was the day spent in Momostango. We spent the morning with a family learning the processes involved in weaving, from the carding of the wool and the dyes, to the spinning and preparing of the threads for the machines. Then we tried our hand at the weaving itself. We had other lessons in cooking and the family shared an early lunch with our own hand-made tortilla.
