Introductions First

When they reached the middle of the forest the father told the children to collect wood to make a fire to keep them warm; and Hansel and Gretel gathered brushwood enough for a little mountain; and it was set on fire, and when the flame was burning quite high the wife said, “Now lie down by the fire and rest yourselves, you children, and we will go and cut wood; and when we are ready we will come and fetch you.” So Hansel and Gretel sat by the fire, and at noon they each ate their pieces of bread. They thought their father was in the wood all the time, as they seemed to hear the strokes of the axe, but really it was only a dry branch hanging to a withered tree that the wind moved to and fro. So when they had stayed there a long time their eyelids closed with weariness, and they fell fast asleep.

And when they were so tired that they could no longer drag themselves along, they lay down under a tree and fell asleep.

Celebration in Mitziton, Chiapas (Fiesta en Mitziton)
(Texto en español al final del blog post.) - Have some Coca-cola, my friend insisted. Have som pox! I don´t have the habit of drinking much of neither beverage, of which the latter may need an explanation. Pox may sound like a disease, but only if it´s badly pronounced. It´s correct pronunciation is "poch", and far from a viral plague it´s the local aguardiente, i e distilled alcohol, of the mountainous parts of central Chiapas. I had some, just a little, but the fact I drank a little alcohol is not the reason why I can´t tell you much about the religious celebration I had been invited too. The reason is I just didn´t understand much o ...
