Chiapas

Chiapas is a place I have not gotten to .......YET! It, along with Oaxaca and Cuba are high on my list of the next places.
There is a man in Oaxaca, Eric Mindling, who conducts amazing tours in Mexico with very knowledgeable guides. Today he sent an email with a slideshow of a tour they do to Chiapas for Day of the Dead among other things. The photos are magnificent and I thought you might enjoy them also. The website is www.traditionsmexico.com/wr2_dod_fibers_hi_chiapas.html Oops, I realize that you can't tell that between each series of words there is an underscore, ie. wr2_dod_fibers_hi_ Hope this works!

Hey Gypsy Girl - Glad you like it. If you're here that time of year, Patzcauro is "life altering" because it is at night! It is the most spiritual, pure, indigenous experience I have ever had...........
