Winter All Over Again - Rob

Gonna have to be a quick one today, were getting our washing done in San Cristobal de las Casas, and itll be ready at 1pm. Were gonna scrounge around and see whats up in this town. Ill post pictures of yesterday, we had both the best drive and the worst drive of the trip so far. One road....190 kilometers...straight. Awesome. Better yet, pouring rain, most of the day. Best part..cold. It was a terrible ride in to Chiapas, but I remembered hearing from somehwrer how beautiful it was, and that is an understatement. From the entrance sign, it is the difference from being in the prairies to being in the Rockies. Beautiful cliffs, panoramas, you name it. One problem, you climb high, and you climb cold. And when youre wet, your frozen. I never knew San Cristobal was at 3000 feet elevation, but more on that later. Were off to look for some meracado somewhere or another (mnarket). Need some fresh fruit, and some fresh clothes.

Huge update next time I get wireless.
