It was a relief to hear today that our friends in Chiapas, Mexico, are shaken but safe. We heard “the worst of the damage was in the lowlands, not in the mountains. Fortunately the famous facades of the colonial churches in San Cristobal de Las Casas survived intact as did the major Maya sites.”
Best wishes to these artists and their families.
