El Campo: Chiapas, 2010

I spent five days with Nicolás, Catalina and their family in Amaquil, a ranchería about an hour and a half ride from San Cristóbal, Chiapas.  A ranchería is often referred to as a "community"; really more a collection of widely spaced houses than a village.  Campesinos here are of Mayan descent and speak Tzeltal.  The main cash crop is coffee and campesinos belong to a fair trade co-op called Kulaktik.
