San Cristobal de las Casas

We spent some days in San Cristobal, the historical and touristic heart of Chiapas. The city is really pleasant and interesting, maybe to much visited. As usual we have been attracted in a special way by the market and “artesania” quarters, thanks to the eclectic contribution of the women from the pueblos situated on the highlands around the city (San Juan Chamula, Amatenango del Valle, Simojovel, Zinacantàn, Oventic, Chenalhò…). In the hostel where we were lodged, we met some funny people and we spent a good time. Every day, walking along the narrow and coloured streets of San Cristobal, we discovered many new locals, bars and “comedores”, but our thoughts are mainly projected towards Guatemala and the place where to cross the border.
