Challenging is the way I would describe that highway to San Cristobal de las Casas today. Imagine a female writer and unexperienced would be adventurer trekking through the mountain jungle passes many years ago to an unknown and hostel land. Bringing their possessions, books and culture to a people unfamiliar with the "outside" world. How brave they must have been. The casa and their legacy live on as if they had just left. An amazing library and artifacts that should probably be in a climatically controlled atmosphere. Interesting gardens. Definitely worth a look.
