Ryan's Takes a Trip to a Zapatista Community and Rants About the Environment

It's been a dream of mine to visit a Zapatista community for years now - ever since I studied them in uni. I learned of EZLN, their guerrilla army filled with indigenous farmers wanting nothing more than what Mexican legend Emiliano Zapata fought for: land and liberty. He was a man not unlike...

Día de los Muertos

Day of the Dead turned out to be a bust. Not to the fault of Mexicans mind you. Movies always gave me the impression it was a wild street party with James Bond chasing a mysterious woman through crowds of dancing skeletons. So ol' Ryan started out the day like any other. Slowly. I got up by...

ZAPATISTALAND

So I´ve lost all record of dates for now. All I know is that we arrived in San Cristobal around Nov 24th? and stayed for 10 entire days!!! That´s huge for us. I think we became honorary residents of this place- but in the end, that was fine with me. Showing up in San CritObal in the late...

3 Days in San Crisobal de Las Casas

This was our third day in San Cristobal de Las Casas. Population is around 100,000. It´s a cool city, literally and figurativly. It has a very distinct arts culture here with a somewhat progressive attitude about the environment, at least that what I got from the hostel I was staying in. It is...

Land of the Zapatistas

Arrived here yesterday afternoon in San Cristobal de Las Casas, in the Mexican state of Chiapas, after stopping over for a day in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. Took the chicken bus from Quetzaltenango to Huehue but a private shuttle service from Huehue to here. Not that much difference in the...
