After a very squashy 10 minute drive our taxi arrived near the church and main square of the village of Zinacatan. Again the villages here have their unique traditional costume, made from local wools with the brilliant and dominate colours of purple, pink and blue. Everyone in the village was dressed up in their best gear for the Christmas celebrations. Amazing!!

What a morning!!! complete sensory overload, the smells of the pine needles and incense in the churches, the brilliant colours of the local costumes and the sounds of the local music and dancing and of course the fireworks!!! A little after mid day, we crammed into another taxi and headed back to San Cristobal for Christmas lunch.
