My Two Kilos Of Pot From Chiapas, Mexico

¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨

This week, at long last, my friends Duncan and Joy delivered my 2 kilos of pot from their place in San Cristobal, Chiapas Mexico. I had been freaking out…waiting and waiting ( you know how it is!? ) right ? The long wait had been a bummer, but at last I can just kick back and contemplate my new stash ! And as I am one to always share my stash…here are a few pictures.  I think you will see why I have such a silly grin on my face right now ! ( the last picture is not of me, of course ) !!! Its a picture of the young Mayan woman who created my pot…..

The Home Of Joy & Duncan

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My friends Joy & Duncan invited me and my friend Bart to stay with them in their 200 year old home in San Cristobal, Chiapas in February. We have known each other for about 4 years, as they stay in my Posada–Casa De La Luz–in Tlacotalpan, Veracruz,  on their long journey to and from Florida about twice a year. GADS-!–they must truly be Nomads !!

Their home incorporates the carriage entrance of a stately 200 year old town home that has since been divided into three residences. Everywhere you look, in every possible location, on every square inch of space, you encounter their incredible collection of FOLK ART from Mexico and beyond.

Every day, wandering from room to room, I would see another piece I had missed the day before. Having taken over 100 photos, below are just a few…and more will be uploaded to my “WEBSHOTS” page this week.

Loading these photographs is so frustrating for me, that again, just click on the WEBSHOTS link at the top of this page to view the rest of the photos ! I can not control the position of these pictures and am giving up for now.
