We left San Cristobal de las Casas, south on the Yucatan peninsula, early this morning only to be trapped by a protest blockade 3 hours later. All roads in the county had been blocked off in protest to the government. We managed to make it back to San Christobal through dirt tracks after paying 20 pesos to  some villagers who decided to take advantage of the situation. Back in San Christobal we couldn't get back out. 6 hours in the car - a whole day wasted  and still 1300 km to travel tomorrow... On the good side, we did find some very fine coffee beans this afternoon. :)

Hi there,

Just wanted to let you know that the link 'ISAK, design for the modern home' at the top right of this blog doesn't work. That is, if that is a direct link to your website....

Am working on putting the items on now. And it is looking good so far!

Kind regards,

Thanks Caroline will look into it.
