Picnil

Mountain views, bubbling brooks, nothing for miles...
Had a peaceful few days in Picnil.  The land is unspoiled.  People live modesty, off the land, growing their crops and enjoying family life.  The weather was very hot, but we didn't notice because of the cool breeze.  Needless to say, by evening time, the sting from our burnt skin testified to the high temperatures!  This place is a great spot to get away from things.  It was strange to live with no electricity or running water - but it was a real insight into how life has been, and continues to be, for many.  No one will have to twist our arms to get us to return...
