The Indians who lived in what is now southern Orange County when the mission was founded called themselves the Acjachemen. When they converted the missionaries called the Juaneños, the children of San Juan. Today a little over 2000 are counted.

We arrived at the train station at 10:55. We had coffee, hot chocolate, and shared a cinnamon roll at the Hidden Coffee House. After touring the Mission we had tapas at Guapas. After a second tour of the Mission we shopped and then waited for the train. There were several wedding parties around the train station.
