After a hefty night bus journey from Merida, I finally arrived in San Cristobel de las Casas.
Busy Street in San Cristobel
Set in the central highlands of the Mexican state Chiapas, San Cristobel is a delightful city featuring cobbled streets and lots and lots of churches.

This is when I realize how much I adore blue skies, sun and hot weather.
