We arrived in San Cristobal yesterday after an amazing bus ride through very very tall hills with jungle like growth. It was a seven hour ride but it breezed by pretty fast because the scenery was so beautiful, like no other drive I have seen. In random places in the jungle growth there was a bunch of corn growing. The vegitation here is so much different, as is the way people farm. San Cristobal is pretty big and a little more touristy then the other cities we have been in. Yesterday we were walking down one of the main streets and guess what? we hear a familure voice saying Scott and Logan! it was our good friend Ameilie from Olympia. She has been living down in Mexico for the past four and a half months making art and friends. She knows the language well and introduced us to some funny characters lastnight. Today we start a language school. It is located right by our hostel which is nice. I´m not that jazzed about our hostel as there are a lot of people from europe that seem to get a little to loud and drunk around the campfire and keep me awake at night. Oh well, it´s just one of those things. The hostel is pretty packed but their is a nice outdoor space were I drew for hours today. I finally got into an art grove, just in time because Amelie and us are going to start a mural in the hostel she is staying in soon. Pictures don´t really upload as Logan's computer is to slow. Should have brought the mac book! but hopefully I can figure out a way to share them, there´s some goodies!
