This is Pedro. We met him in Tenejapa, a tiny indigenous Tzeltal village in Chiapas, Mexico, when he spotted us during his daily ‘walk’ through the market. He was delighted to see foreign people visiting his town, as not many tourists go there. He then invited us to his house and showed us pictures of his family. An example of the wonderful friendliness of Mexicans, and especially in places with little or no tourism.
His outfit is a traditional dress of the Tzeltal people. Men of political and religious status wear these ribboned hats and black dresses woven from sheep hair along with various embellishments and accessories that identify their role.
