Comitan, or Back in Mexico

After a month in Guatamala i had kind of run out of things to do. So back to mexico i go. First stop Comitan.

When i arrived it was beautifully hot and windy. I like Comitan a lot, one of my favouite citys so far. It has nice wide streets, no rubish, happy people and no tourists.
OK, onto the food.
First up i was after something light, which can often be hard in Mexico if you dont want soup. So i went for some Tostadas de Pollo. These were amazing. They consited of chicken, cabbage, tomato, avocado, sour cream and some sort of mustardy pickle type vegitable. Wach on the hot salsa and i was one happy Roy.
Next day i went off to see El Chifon. A big waterfall. Walking up to the park from the bus stop i grabbed some bbq chicken. Thats what i mean by 44 gallon drum Cam.
I got really really wet getting up to the closest viewing point. Was it because of the extra water from the rain or just a viewing point for stupid tourist i dont know. This picture is not that viewing point.
Few other highlight was some onion soup. Something i like to try around the place because its always different, and good. This one was kind of creamy.To go with this i had some street pie from here:It was a cheese pie i suppose. But kind of like custard pie back home. I think i would have prefered the australian/asian version. Oh well, whats food adventuring without disapointment.
Up at Lagos de Montebello i had some quesadillas from one of the dodgy roadside shacks. Click on the photo and you should he able to see the meat hanging up behind the girl preparing my loganiza and cheese treats.They reminded me of tacos full of fried salami and cheese (which they were i suppose, it was more just the fried salami brought back some stong childhood memorie. Or was it uni? It all seems the same to me now). Very oily. I also think they made my stomach a bit off. But it just could have been the heat and silly amounts of walking.

An electrical engineer by trade his nerdiness also crosses over into his love for folk music and playing warhammer.
