San Cristobal de las Casas, the Chiapaneco gem

 

san cristobal EZLN zapatistas graffitiAfter forgetting in Guatemala what it was like to be able to walk a few steps without sweating, arriving in San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas, Mexico was an absolute delight. Strolling around town, venturing around the markets, smelling the street food...everything was better at a comfortable temperature. It´s the first town I´ve truly felt sucked into. I was hoping to explore more around Chiapas, but time is a bit short on the trip. I´ve been interested in the Zapatista movement for some time (mostly for it´s struggles for indigenous independence/autonomy, and less so their Marxist tendencies), Chiapas being it´s epicenter, but visiting those communities will have to wait until a later time. Hitching through Mexico back to the US is the focus now. Pictures are below.
