Plowing in Oaxaca, Mexico

Sean Sheriff, who teaches at a local university here in Oaxaca, Mexico took the following film with a flip camera.

I found out that it is not easy to keep the plow level and the horse going straight and still get something done. As soon as this young farmer gets a few rows plowed, the ladies start planting the beans. (All by hand.) They first say a little prayer, and then off they go planting beans all by hand.
