Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

From the coast to San Cristobal

We drive today from the coast, Juchitan, where we have spent the nite at a Pemex gas station, through the most amazing mountains, idyllic valleys and plains, climbing several thousand feet with stunning views and bucolic (Bridget's word of course) towns, farms, country pueblos.

We finally arrive in San Cristobal in time to explore Centro, go to yet another fabulous marketplace, and stumble into yet another womon running a veggie oil bus with her son and his friends!

We have a great time but get stuck looking for our camping place after dark - driving down tiny unsigned roads, through masses of traffic, up and down hills - and finally luck out - I mean REALLY luck out, and find our campground - will blog more about this later!
