San Cristobel

I flew in to Tuxla Gutierrez, stayed the night and got a bus up to San Cristobel in the morning.

San Cristobel is a beautiful town up in the mountains. Pretty touristy though. Which is OK at the moment as my spanish is pretty bad.

After some breakfast and meeting up with the family we went or a bush walk to the cloud forest which was amazing.

For dinner i grabbed some chicken soup and trompo tacos. Pretty standard fare but pretty good. Especially the soup.

The next day we went on a tour up to some local villages. The first town had a pretty interesting market. Where me and Luke got tacos and beer.
Then we headed up to another village. There we went to a local house where they made us some lunch. It was really good. The highlights were the eta like chease and ground roasted pumkin seed. Which we added to beans and salsa on some tortillas. It was really nice vegitarian meal, which is pretty rare in Mexico.

After that the girls dressed Luke & Lil up for a wedding. They even got Mum & Pops in on it. A lot of laughing all round.

The food highlight of San Cristobel was definitly the corn cups. These are sold by street vendors all over the place for 10 pesos ($1). They take corn cut of the cob, mix it together with mayonaise, chese and hot sauce. Im a couple of towns further on at the moment and havent found it since. But the girls, emma & joey, tell me they ate it heaps up in Montery. So there is hope yet.

Adios, until next time.
