Last days of Mexico

4/16 – 4/20 I was shuffling about the hostel early the morning of the 16th…. trying to find a clean plate.  This is the only issue I tend to have in the places with “good energy.” The Universe, all powerful as it may be for the young and nappy, has yet to venture into cleaning Read More

San Cristobal: Part IV

4/13/19 – 4/15/19 Just outside of San Cristobal is the little town of Chamula.  Several people described it as an indigenous stronghold where people live by their own traditional rules.  They don’t pay taxes and they don’t care for other Mexicans sticking their noses into their town.  It sounded a bit like Colorado City, Utah.  Read More
