feels good to be getting more exercise than usual.
shadows are following me. it’s okay, i like them.
san cristobal has many different barrios. 11 in the central part of town. each has a designated church and associated patron saint. they also have distinct celebrations and feast days. traditionally the inhabitants of certain barrios had particular skills. one is known for their pork merchants, their carpenters, metal work, ceramics, leatherwork, or bakers, and so on and so forth.
i’m not sure if the colors of the streamers are exclusive to each barrio. i will find a resident expert to ask! i happen to know a very nice one.
i told you the sidewalks were high!
i had lunch today in a sweet little restaurant on a little hill overlooking part of the city. like all good things, i stumbed upon it by accident.
it’s a simple pleasure to come home to a clean house – the doors propped open with stones – take my shoes off, and commence a series of very important leisure activities.
i have a bazillion photos to share today! will attempt to get them in the right order. no promises.
