... tuna – to street demonstrators selling giant snails for medical purposes. It was amazing to walk round the food stalls – many whole hogs/unidentifiable meat – the carne mixed with water layering the floors (not a day for flip flops!).

Sorry guys, we ate everything on the way. Finally we arrived at Tsa'Chila museum and reservation. We were met by a local guide and his family. Note the interesting hair and "halo". Jorge told us that the men experience no hair loss as they age and attribute it to the natural substances they put on it. The ...
