Cañon El Sumidero

Start of the 1 ½ hour lasting excursion through the Canyon. The Canyon is worn out millions of years ago by the wild river, Río Grijalva, which in 1982, was tamed by the construction of the Chicoasen-dam.
We rent a small boat with considerably horse power and put on our life-jackets. We see vultures, crocodiles, birds, and very high rock-faces with beautiful rockeries.
And somewhere in a rock we see a little Maria chapel.
The walls are at some places almost 1000 meters high!!



 ¡VÁMONOS!!!, going on the river.






Through the water that drips smoothly from above downstairs, we see some beautiful lichens formed in huge dimensions. Very special to see.










On the way back.
Just a quick stop to take a last picture...... 










After a terrific excursion through the canyon we set off again.
We keep on driving to San Cristóbal de las casas.
Again beautiful landscapes underway.



From tehuantepec, on sea level, we enter the mountains again to go to the, on 2300 meters high city,  San Cristóbal de las Casas

Tot nu toe betreft het een viertal vakanties: Suriname, Egypte, Peru, Bolivia en Mexico. Verder een kort fotoverslag van de zonsverduistering in 1999 te noord-frankrijk in de buurt van het plaatsje Spincourt. Er is een mogelijkheid om mijn gastenboek te tekenen.
