    The Church in Amantenango 4 more images

    by JeSuisJill Written Jan 16, 2006

    I took a bus with the "folks" from San Cristobal de las Casas to a town called Amantenango. There is LITTLE to do there but buy LOTS of inexepnsive ceramics.

    What I enjoyed most about the place is its tranquil vibe, the horses on the roadsides and the beautiful charming town.

    Ahh, the ceramics. I bought little painted bowls for less than $3 a piece, and many little ashtrays for a $1. I LOVED the little house that was selling them and the grandparents whose family labored to paint them.

    I never made it to the Zapatista Camp, but you CAN go there as a tourist ...

    I thought they said "no" to Capitalism? I guess as long as they can make a little $$ people change their policy, belief and everything ...
