Adiós Mexico!

Of course not visiting all the places we planned, and of course much later than we planned – we are leaving Mexico. Surprisingly, without any problem on the Guatemalan border!!

San Cristobal the Coolest

Mexico Likes

Cool, because situated between hills in a small valley. Cool, because very walkable and likable with all the small cafes (first time we felt Berlin’s atmoshpere). Cool, because of all the Maya’s culture in the city.

Chiapas’ diversity

And each of the villages has its own clothing, language, beliefs and customs. And maybe even 1/3 of the people don’t speak Spanish! And from those jungles came the rebel movement of Zapatista, which is fighting for a democratic change of indigenous rights. Chiapas: an amazing state of Mexico.

Juicy green Palenque ruins

Already arriving to the camping place, close to the Palenque ruins, gave a very tropical feeling: dipped in the jungle small road to small wooden cabanas, bustling with “King of the jungle” song, wet and hot morning just waiting for exploring the ruins.
