Overview
I grew up with the traditions and legends of indigenous and mestizo peoples of Chiapas, where I come from and learned them from my grandparents, parents and later, during my university career, I delved into several historical and social aspects. I also lived a historical moment in my city, witnessing the armed revolution of the EZLN (Zapatistas). My passion for the history and traditions of San Cristobal and Chiapas continues to be more and more alive and I enjoy sharing it with the visitors of Chiapas, which I have been receiving very positive comments for 10 years.
