Leaving Manzute - on the road to San Cristobal, Chiapas

We head out of Manzute - with the 25 gallons of veggie oil we've collected - and head toward San Cristobal, our next big stop.

We will take two days to reach San Cristobal, as we have to stop to filter the oil, and it is a long way, about 6 hours at least.

We drive to yet another small town outside Juchitan, where we go to the market and spend too much money on wonderful food.

We have a great, long conversation with two womyn close to our age, all in Spanish!

We try to find a place to park for the nite in this little town but are unsuccessful. We are told there is a huge Pemex 5 kilometers down the road - which turns out to be 25 kilometers. We pull in after dark, play several hands of cards - I win! - and spend the nite peacefully after adjusting to the gale force winds, dogs barking, and music blaring!
