It's funny and sad that when I mention to people that I'm going to or am in Chiapas, the first question is "What about the Zapatistas?" That episode in their history was over twenty years ago. On the positive side it did give a face to Chiapas and there are young backpackers galore from all over the world here!
I've been traveling this past week in this magnificently, gloriously beautiful and pristine state.
If you have never been here then you have missed one the great treats of life.
From Palenque to Aqua Azul waterfalls, Misol-Ha waterfall and now in San Cristobal de las Casas.
Yesterday, quite by accident, I witnessed two ancient ceremonies in two different villages that were, without a doubt, one of the highlights of my life. It was hard to sleep last night as the memories of
the day kept running through my mind.
Only one more day in San Cristobal and then off to Chiapa de Corzo and the Sumidero Canyon which is beyond spectacular.
I have not downloaded any of the photos as yet but suffice to say, there is much to share.
By this time next week, if not sooner, I'll be able to share this awesome state with you, that has more indigenous living in it then any other state in Mexico.
See you back on the hill in SMA, or down the road in Mexico.
