Hola, hola...buenas tardes.
Mango, mango, mango.
Frijoles, aguacate, naranhas, papas, zanahoria, tomate, cacahuate, cebolla, ajo, y mas!
My diet is better than it has ever been thanks to the outdoor mercado here in San Cristobal.
For this visit I have had more than one month in a house in the mountains to myself.
Muchas gracias: Milo Tamez.
My right arm is healing from something poisonous that also made its way to my left arm.
Muy feo y mucho dolor.
Hauled many buckets of water to the top of the house multiple times using a ladder and some rope.
Rainwater washes the dishes.
Rainwater washes mi cuerpo in the shower.
After running out of gas the other week I started taking cold showers (cur-sing!).
The reward comes when drying under the sun.
The other day I am halfway through a shower when I look down to find a GIANT spider.
Made a few photographs of this special creature before taking it to the garden to enjoy itself.
My amigo asked me if it was a tarantula...ai ai ai.
Photographed a beautiful moth with the field camera...not an easy thing to do.
Photographed a cow.
Photographed a man playing a 103 year old harmonipan on the street.
Mucho vistas y a few portraits.
Soon I depart the great state of Chiapas and head to a place where I hope to have my own studio for a bit.
Very much looking forward to this as there are not too many resources for me here in San Cristobal.
What there are a lot of here: so-called hippies and so-called artists telling you they do not have any money before letting you know they 'only' came here with four thousand euro (okay!).
Riding bicycles that make me miss my Grandmother's tough-as-nails Schwinn,
though I am happy to have access to them!
Also, a lot of walking.
Six pesos for the colectivo here...THREE pesos for the train in DF!!!
Maybe the CTA should send a few representatives to Mexico and learn a thing or two.
Mucho amantes en Mexico...a beautiful thing!
Hummingbirds...butterfly eggs...some crazy looking insect that I enjoyed playing with the other night.
That Oaxacan bullshit? We on it.
