OK, San Cristobal de las Casas Cavegirl and I are settled into a nice inexpensive hotel with courtyard parking right in the heart of the city. The next morning we take off on a walking tour. Enjoy……………
Blocks from our hotel people are stoking up their grills getting ready for the day.
There are several historic buildings near the city center.
Local artists are hard at work.
It is close to noon and the streets are starting to fill up.
This little girl is a hard seller. We didn’t want anything she had but finally I offered her 5 pesos for a photo. No problem.
This woman is twisting twine in her hand and attaching pine needles to the line somehow. You can barely see part of the finished product (garland) near the sack of pine needles on the left.
This woman was busy making her crafts on this bench.
Heidi chased down this guy for a half block. She has been talking about fresh squeezed OJ for weeks. He peels the oranges on this peeler then presses then with an orange press into a big plastic cup. Yum….
We saw this woman earlier in the day making her crafts right on the street. Heidi thought they looked cute.
She buys two little hand made things, a turtle and a little doll, ten pesos each ($1.00 each)
A few times today we saw a large crowd of people surrounding someone. Not sure what the big deal was here.
I’m not sure what was going on here either…..
Corn on the cob is sold everywhere in San Cristobal.
People set up shop anywhere there is space. San Cristobal has the best displays of fruit and vegetables we have seen anywhere.
Heidi and I head toward the market area.
This place was a buzz of activity.
We head inside the market building.
This guy had two or three live chickens in each hand.
This was not a huge market area but it was one of the prettiest we have been to.
Back outside the market building this woman is bagging up her tortilla chips getting ready for a sale.
Heidi broke her motorcycle sunglasses and is on a mission to find another pair. Score…….
Walking back toward the city center.
City center, we look for a spot for a little lunch.
Tacos carne asada for cavegirl and Tacos de pollo for me.
Another hard seller. We like to patronize people who are trying to work but we didn’t want anything he had. Cinco pesos for the photo and he was happy.
We hope you enjoyed our little photo tour of San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico………
