Textiles in San Cristobal Artisan Market

The Artisan Market in San Cristobal de las Casas offers an amazing mix of everything from Amber Jewelry to Zapatista Dolls. Most of the products are hand produced in the villages surrounding the city. The lively market is located on the grounds of  the Santo Domingo Church and is laboriously set up everyday and taken down each night.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
