We've had the best time in San Cristobal with David and Laura (who we met in Oaxaca). They decided to book an extended stay in the apartment above ours, and it has been so fun to have good friends nearby! A few weeks ago we all drove down to Lagos de Montebello, a set of lakes in Chiapas on the border of Guatemala. We did the thing you do when you visit a body of water in Mexico - jump in with your clothes on to go swimming, then hire a local guy to take you out to the secret island on his boat.
After swimming around all day, we made a quick detour to see some Mayan ruins on the way home. "Let's check out these ruins" is just a standard phrase in our vocabulary these days, like checking out the new Trader Joe's down the block. Just like that.
