The tour with Fundacion En Via is an opportunity to experience life in Oaxaca and the spirit of it's people. We had a comfortable ride in an air-conditioned van led by Kim and Samantha from En Via, and Vicky one of our hostesses from the town of Etla. There were Americans, French, and German visitors on our tour. Arriving in Etla at a home and organic farm, we were treated to one of the best meals I had in Oaxaca. Blue corn tortillas off the comal, plenty of fresh pico de gallo, avocados that were just like butter, and the best mole I have tasted - made with organic chocolate. Our hostesses gave us a tour of the organic farm; demonstrated how organic incredients were used to make soaps and palmades; and shared with us how to make organic chocolate. The journeys of our hostesses and how their businesses have helped them develop as leaders was inspiring. We all bought plenty of products for ourselves and friends- not because we were pressured in any way - but because of the quality of products. Our hostess Vicki and her family welcomed us warmly into their homes. It was wonderful to see and experience the success of women as a result of the modest investment by En Via. Please plan to visit - to support other opportunities for Oaxacan women
