After a five-hours bus ride, which I imagined far worse than it was, we finally arrived in San Cristobal de las Casas. I have to stress: uphill, narrow roads, a little more uphill and 199 km of road from Palenque to San Cristobal. But it was fine. No one got sick. The landscape was just stunning. Chiapas is beautiful beyond words. And poor beyond words. And produces awesome coffee and handcrafts. San Cristobal is simply picturesque and for many reasons very much loved by hippies. The super nice and relaxing atmosphere made it easy to enjoy our stay.
