Chiapas and San Cristobal de las Casas

The morning sky was usually beautifully bright blue and clear…with rain in the afternoons.  San Cristobal is at an altitude of 2100 metres so it can be alittle cooler there as well.

You see people of many different indigenous groups throughout the city; with their variety of native dress.san christoble de las casas 082san christoble de las casas 098

Many of them are selling things to the tourists …..and some dont like to have their photo taken….and hide their faces….

Two interesting places to visit are the Mayan Museum of Traditional Medicine….


And Cisco, an american who started an Orchid rescue sanctuary over 20 years ago…saving many orchid varieties that otherwise would have been destroyed from the deforestation.
