Basswood in San Cristobal de las Casas

Basswood sent a message yesterday saying he was in San Cristóbal. San Cristóbal de las Casas is a city and municipality located in the Central Highlands region of Chiapas, Mexico.

The city, especially the historic center, has maintained its Spanish colonial layout, with narrow cobblestone streets, roofs covered in red clay tile and wrought iron balconies with flowers. The facades of the buildings vary from Baroque to Neoclassical and Moorish, painted in various colors. Milk delivery from local dairy farms still use canisters on donkeys, and farmers typically still use horses and donkeys for hauling wood and farmed goods within their own properties.  (Information from Wikipedia here.)
