Chiapas es precioso y con tus fotos se reafirma.
Un saludo.

Es un curioso el fervor religioso que hay en estos pueblos.

An interesting cemetery. A little sad that it does not seem to be better maintained.

Oh so many new graves . . . the graveyard seems to be integrated with the city, I like that.

It looks like a beautiful mountain village. The cemetery looks a bit chaotic.

It is sad that there are so many areas in Mexico that look sad and uncared for! In my travels there I found a little of it all.

A tragic little cemetery.

Amazing. I have never been to that part of Mexico but would love to. Miss Mexico in general these days. Always feels mystical to me.

Looks like a poor village cemetery. The sentiments of the grieving relatives are the same as in a rich cemetery though, and I think there many flower offerings around. Good shots, Jose.

Oh it looks like a lot of them are so fresh, no grasses are growing yet!

Strange sense of scattering in this cemetery! Intriguing views!

i would like to see it from closerby!
it seems almost as if the dead are not buried inside the ground but more like earth is piled on top of them (all those little bumps?)

Interesting that the cemetery appears to be so much greener than the valley below. It does appear very battered, but I appreciate Nick's comment.

The cemeteries I see around the world each week are so very much different from each other.

That you for adding to the variety, Jose.

The mounds of dirt are ... interesting (for want of a better word).
