Chiapas Street Art

18 Jun

Chiapas, the southernmost state in Mexico and home to the zapatista revolution, is an amazing place, rich in natural beauty and indigenous cultures.  I recently traveled there with my father and was awed by the friendly people, breathtaking views, and political graffiti.  San Cristobal de la Casas, a town where we spent several nights and the main hub for tourists in the region, is a picturesque town located high in the mountains and full of crumbling colonial buildings covered in edgy graffiti.  It was the first time in Mexico I have seen graffiti be so political.
