San Juan de Chamula
This was a trip that Helga from the school set up for Carol and me with a private guide.
At the end of classes on Wednesday, our guide, Teresa, came to the school and off we went in a taxi up into the hills to visit one of the most colorful villages in the area–San Juan de Chamula!
In SJC we went into the home of a local family who sold some beautiful fabrics that you can see here in the photos.
Pretty neat stuff, huh? But, we weren’t leaving the house quite yet….there were still tortillas to eat in the kitchen.
