Days 54—55 (20th - 21st May) - after travelling on the roof of small truck I arrived at Nueva Esperanza and from there after 1. 5 hour trekking I reached an isolated community of Benito Juarez. That hamlet can be reached only on foot or by horse.

Some more pictures from Valladolid - mural showing prehispanic times.
Those murals are housed in Valladolid’s Municipal Palace (Palacio Municipal), they depict the history of Valladolid and the struggles of the local Mayan people during the Spanish conquest.

Day 44 (10th May) - the visit to Oventik. This very small village is one of the five caracoles of the Zapatistas, a peaceful, ultra-leftist indigenous, revolutionary group in Chiapas.

Day 43 (9th May) - the visit to Chamula and San Juan Church.
The church of San Juan, in the municipal cabecera (headtown), is filled with colorful candles, and smoke from burning copal resin incense, commonly used throughout southern Mexico. Along the walls of the church are Catholic saints resting on tables posted in the church, but they represent Mayan gods. Candles are lit and the people sit on the floor and pray below the saints. The local form of Catholicism is a blend of pre-conquest Maya customs, Spanish Catholic traditions, and subsequent innovations.

There are no pews in the church, and the floor area is completely covered in a carpet of green pine boughs. Curanteros (medicine men) diagnose medical, psychological or ‘evil-eye’ afflictions and prescribe remedies such as candles of specific colors and sizes, specific flower petals or feathers, or - in a dire situation - a live chicken. The specified remedies are brought to a healing ceremony. Chamula families kneel on the floor of the church with sacrificial items, stick candles to the floor with melted wax, drink ceremonial cups of Posh, artisanal sugar-cane-based liquor, and chant prayers in an archaic dialect of Tzotzil.

Photography in the town is very difficult as parents will hide their children or they themselves will turn away as soon as they spot a camera. Photography within the church is strictly prohibited as is photographing the Christmas procession to the church. They can throw you out of town if you attempt to violate this rule.

Day 37 - the trip to Canyon Sumidero
Sumidero Canyon (Spanish: Cañón del Sumidero) is a deep natural canyon located just north of the city of Chiapa de Corzo in the state of Chiapas, in southern Mexico. The canyon's creation began around the same time as the Grand Canyon in the U.S. state of Arizona, by a crack in the area's crust and subsequent erosion by the Grijalva River, which still runs through it. Sumidero Canyon has vertical walls which reach as high as 1,000 metres (3,300 ft), with the river turning up to 90 degrees during the 13-kilometre (8.1 mi) length of the narrow passage (source: Wikipedia)
