Anyone in Chiapas?
Are any of you in Chiapas right now? I just arrived in San Cristobal De Las Casas and Staying at the Azteca Hotel, right beside the shopping mall on the way in from Tuxtla. Downtown was too busy, expensive and mostly booked up anyway. It's Easter weekend after all.
I absolutely love the cool air and lack of humidity. I might stay here for a few days after roasting all the way down the coast for a over a week. The ride up from Tuxtla is simply breathtaking. The road winds and climbs non stop, while going past little indiginous villages where traditional dress is still worn. The temperature goes from blast furnace to open refrigerator by the time you get to San Cristobal. What a nice change!
I'll be heading on into Guatemala and beyond after I leave here.
