The Chortí People (II)

Yesterday we walked through the town of Jocotán.We found the long-standing hotel where the story of my previous blog ( ) took place and THIS was the mirror my mom was talking about! It does emphasize my point even further.


The “confusing” mirror at the end of the hall.

I leave  you with some more pictures of our walk yesterday through Jocotán main street. It was told me by a vendor that on Sundays this street is so full of people it is almost impossible to walk through it due to the fact that everyone comes down from the villages on Sunday to sell baskets, corn and whatever else they have to offer.
