Three images to share some impressions of a moment in San Juan Chamula. Next to the market where the two youngs where working stands the church, popular for the rituals practiced within. Between the visible pre-hispanic heritage preserved and defended by the independent community, fragments of imported christianism digested in the religious life of the village, and the growing intensity of the relationship between the young generation and the 2.0 technology, the place appears somewhat as the garlands hanging on the walls surrounding the church, a whole formed by the weaving of delicate and complex elements.
