|A work in progress: It´s progressive|
Lifes design continues to emerge as I go along. I've just returned from a trip to San Cristobal de las Casas in the State of Chiapas, United States of Mexico. It was really fun. The restaurants from modest-excellent to just plain fantastico and the many open markets, shops and informal vendors in the streets were delightful. Folk art abundant, bright/somber colors weaving in and out creating high style...dazzling from every point of view, but mostly, exciting new interpretations of apparel and home/fashion accessories, plus interludes with local cultural awareness and some basics in Maya ¨living¨ we quickly learned through...we were transposed into the passionate/determined understanding of the real history of Chiapas for four days/daze.

|Very other worldly church in San Juan Chamula, Chiapas. Interior photos forbidden, can go to jail or worse. Floor covered with pine needles, no pews, thousands of candles, the occasional squack of a chicken about to be sacrificed. photo/Joan Fuetsch|
Another wonderful trip up Mexico way (btw, there was no violence, no civil unrest, no thieving and no upsetting moments in Chiapas) the whole State purred like a kitten and the prices were great.
