Hola amigos!

I got this awesome card from Marco in Mexico! Thank you so much Marco! The only bad thing is that some stupid mailservice person put a staplerthingie in my beautiful postcard! 😥 meeeh!

Marco wrtites:

Yochib is a village in the rural area, ubicated in the state of Chiapas. People of the ethnic groups Tzotziles and Tzeltaes attend the local market and exchange goods like vegetables, domestic animals, cacao seeds, wood and cloths. Lots of them realize these exchanges without money. This commercial system was already used in the pre-columbian-area and many villages still use it nowadays.

I send love!
