We got a lot of walking in around the beautiful colonial city of San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico's Chiapas state.  I thought I'd share some of the many photos Barry shot as we walked around town.  San Cristobal's architecture was strikingly beautiful. 

You'll likely notice that we (and others) are dressed more warmly than in Belize in some of these shots.  It was much cooler and less humid up in the Mexican highlands than what we were used to -- and breezy as well.  Morning temperatures were in the 40s, but the sun warmed things up quickly and mid-day temperatures hit the 60s and 70s.  When the sun was out, it felt great, but overcast skies off and on made it feel a bit chilly.  Still, no rain, bugs, or humidity made for very pleasant sight-seeing weather!
There were several pedestrian-only streets, like the one above, that made walking easier and more pleasant.
We climbed up this switchback staircase to a beautiful scenic overlook of the city.  There's a school and church up top, and we read about a cafe on Tripadvisor, but never saw it.

What a view!
Stay tuned for much more from San Cristobal...

Thanks Elaine! I highly recommend this trip. It wasn't that hard or expensive to do and so much more interesting to us than sticking to the typical tourist destinations in Mexico. Glad you're enjoying coming along for the ride!
