Old Doors in the Spanish Colonial town of San Cristobal De Las Casas

One of the great things about old Spanish colonial towns is all of the interesting architectural details everywhere you look. Many of the colonials near the center of San Cristobal are well over 100 years old, though it is hard to know how many are actually from the time of the colonization. There are quite a few adobe houses which are newer than 100 years old as well.

    • Kelly, these pics are expeptional. Who took them. Sometimes I envy you two on such a grand adventure. Always follow your dream.

      David & I know a couple, deceased now, who had a lot of adventure in there lives and when asked in their elder years if they had any regrets, they said “we wish we had taken more chances”.

      So, take your chances and relly taste your life. Love to you both.
