Through Palenque to San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, MX

We took an overnight bus to Palenque and almost immediately caught another bus to Ocosingo, thereby bypassing much of the treasures of the state of Chiapas, but you can't do everything! Upon arriving in Ocsingo, we wound our way through the market place where the indigenous and local peoples sold their goods, eventually making our way to a VW bus colectivo which took us out to the Mayan ruins of Tocina. It was a hot day, and the sun felt like it was piercing our skin. Notice how I am ducking out of the sun, behind the shade of this ancient column. Michelle is on her way down a staircase on the backside of this temple (these are just a hair steeper than stairs in your average townhouse).

We are currently in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, MX. We will likely be here for the next several days to a week. We will hopefully start some schooling tomorrow in Espanol. More to follow.

Mark & Michelle
