brrrrr! (yes, again)

I'm currently in San Cristobal de las Casas in Chiapas. It's cold!! I slept with 3 blankets last night and still woke up from the cold. It's about 6000 ft. above sea level, so you can imagine that it's chilly. The good thing though is that I allow myself to drink as many Mexican hot chocolates as I please, which not only warm me up, but fulfill every chocolate dream I've had.

Anyhow, I spent yesterday exploring the town, taking pictures of the architecture, wandering the artisan market and attending a salsa class. (Oh, salsa dancing, how I've missed you. Unfortunately, it is not like riding a bike. I felt clumsy and off beat.) Today I went to Cañon del Sumidero, a massive canyon with a hydroelectic dam built at the end of the river. I went out on a tour boat, which was enjoyable but tiring because people wanted to take pictures of everything. I understand....but how many crocodile pictures does one need to show to friends back home?

It's decision time for me now. I have to decide if I'm going to head to Merida or Playa del Carmen tomorrow. Both bus rides will be over 12 hours...I have such a desire to get in some beach time since I was cheated at Roatan.
