FILE - In this Jan. 6, 2016 file photo, Juliana, a 20-year-old rebel fighter for the 36th Front of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, rests from a trek in the northwest Andes of Colombia, in Antioquia state. Like many of her comrades in arms, her path to the FARC was born as much from personal tragedy as political ideology. In her case, she fled an impoverished home at age 16 and followed in the footsteps of an uncle after being raped by her stepfather. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd, File)

As retaliation, the pair roamed the streets wearing masks painted with sour expressions. Every Carnival since then, "Caretas" groups parade through Triunfo wearing their dour masks and cracking whips. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana, File)

FILE - In this Nov. 30, 2016 file photo, pulque producer Antonio Gomez extracts the sugary liquid or "aguamiel," from the hollow section of a maguey plant, in Santiago Cuautlalpan, Mexico.

But the nutrient-rich drink has made a comeback among a new generation of Mexicans. (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte, File)
