Carol bought a couple of inexpensive fabrics in the house/shop we were visiting. We then sat down in the kitchen with the family and ate the REAL Mexican tortillas made over an open fire on the floor.
I wasn’t sure the health department would approve of our dining situation, but it is one of those experiences you cannot afford to pass up and we were better for it. We probably ate 20 tortillas. Some of the helpers with the dishes We were leaving the house when I saw the above photo opp which I thought was interesting. I turned around and quickly captured it.
In SJC there is a very interesting church with an incredible religious history that is much too complicated to go into on a blog, so you will just have to go yourself. Don’t miss it! I will tease you with a photo of the doors of the church. After the church tour we went out into the plaza and were in the middle of a huge market.
Next- The Market of San Juan de Chamula and an opportunity for a new wife!
