Goodbye Puerto, Hello San Cristobal De Las Casas

2 Oct

Our last day in Puerto was extremely lazy, spent sitting around the house and eating. We jumped on the overnight bus and arrived in San Cristobal De Las Casas the next morning at around 11am. Met some more Australian’s on the bus and ended up at the same hostel as them – Iguana’s Hostel. It’s unavoidable to move in packs, especially when you don’t have a hostel booked and all you want to do is get your pack off your back.

San Cristobal is very, very cool. The streets are all cobblestone with the main part of town full of coffee shops, restaurants, plazas and churches. The artisan markets here are brilliant – so much awesome craftwork, blankets, jewellery, clothing and so CHEAP. Without even bargaining, prices are ridiculous and I have a feeling im going to spend a bit of money. Lots of money on buying things and even more money on sending it all home, along with my hammock that I bought in Oaxaca.

We spent the day with Kelvin and ML- two guys that Kel met at the airport in brissie who are on the same path as us – exploring the markets, playing table tennis at the hostel and drinking beers while people watching (so many dresses up chihuhuas!)

Today we’re off for a horse ride to a little town outside of San Cristobal city. Apparently there’s a little church there that’s worth seeing where just last week they gave chicken sacrifices to God.
