Leaving the ruins of Tenam Puente we retraced our path back to San Cristobal. We had about 45 minutes to stall shop and do the whole tourist thing.
Fortunately, I wasn't really tempted by any of the things I saw for sale. I suppose it's a "been there, done that" type of thing. But I did indulge in some fresh Churros which I shared with my friends. They are SO much better here than what you get in the US.
Aside from that I spent my time between three different cathedrals taking pictures. The colors and style were varied and unique, but had it been a sunny day I'm sure everything would have been that much more impressive.
I'm sure you could spend an entire day meandering the streets of San Cristobal, but I had seen enough in the 45 minutes we had. And besides, it was time to get back to Tuxtla. We reboarded our bus and headed back. It was great to get out for a day and see some different areas, but I was ready to get back as well. Next time I really don't want to start so early - 7am is a ridiculous time to be awake!
