Hola from San Cristobal!
Tomorrow marks our first full week in San Cristobal. We started our first day off in Cancuc, Chiapas for a beautiful religious festival with textile expert Walter F. Morris. We learned about the Zapitista movement over lunch and after went exploring around the lively town including walk through their marketplace where they sold all kinds of handmade goods.
Everyday in Chiapas feels like a blessing! Never have we felt so invited anywhere else we have been. The colorful streets match the bright, happy vibe we get from the people we’ve met. The girls and boys at Club Balam made us feel very welcome and at home, as did the boys in La Casa de las Flores. We have already painted a mural in the Garden, set up a compost bin for the Garden, and have many ideas for what we’d like to continue doing with the kids.
From Lee and Nora, talk soon
