Photos: Chiapas, Mexico

Chiapas was one of the most incredible places I had ever been. I loved every minute of it. I spent four days there, visiting several cities and Mayan ruins and famous waterfalls. The weather became rainy and foggy once we got there.

This was my first attempt at taking photograph seriously. I bough a camera just for this trip. It was there that my passion and love travel photography was born. I had many more photos I took while there, unfortunately, they were all stolen except for these few I had put online.

A sign letting us know that we are entering into what is called Zapatista Territory. They are a far-left libertarian-socialist political and militant group that controls a substantial amount of territory in Chiapas defies the Mexican government’s authority over their state.
