It is nice to have a map of the Barrios. It is interesting how here they do not referr to the barrios much and how they are not organized. In San Cristobal de las Casas, each barrio has a president and is well organized and how people of the barrio are on whatsapp and how all the barrio news is communicated via whatsapp, here nada... pretty sad.

Today is Día de San Sebastian.  That barrio has an annual fiesta/novena honoring their namesake.  It normally culminates in a rather spirited parade today.  

They started off pretty strong this year based on the cohetes I hear, but new covid restrictions put in place midway have supposedly limited all fiestas (thru Feb. 12) to only the church/religious portions of it.  

Not sure if the parade will go on today or not.

I'm listening to their cohetes now for early mass no doubt.

The only problem with that map is the tiny, tiny print.

Good to see that my street map is still useful! Try this map for a simpler version of the barrios of Ajijic. This simpler map appears in my forthcoming book, "Foreign Footprints in Ajijic: decades of change in a Mexican Village", due to be released in March this year. Ajijic---What Hood Are You In??

What is the story behind these names? What does it mean to belong to one or another? How are they connected to the church?

Barrios were originally formed by the church as there was no differnce between state and church. The Spaniard usually has an administrative center and areound the center they had barrios to protect the center. The center was usually SPanish and the barrios indigenous. So the barrios are named by saints and that gave the church more power and more ways to worship saints and more money for fiestas.

In San Cristobal de las Casas the barrios are still very important . They are well organized and put pressure on the government to get what their ned for that neighborhood. We have a president of the barrion , even someone in charge of various streets or parts of the barrio. We are on whatsapp and we can mobilize people very quickly. Right now we all signed petition to the governor of CHiapas to get more security. WHen all are on the local cops whatsapp and can call them for help that way. We can also send a message of the man in charge of our area if we have a problem and we get help from citizens very quickly. We had a large fire a week ago and the barrio mobilized quicly and sent the firedpt a list of people who volunteered to let the fire dpt pump water from their aljibe as there is no water during the day on the streets.
Here the barrios  are pretty much for a small fiesta in San Sebastian but I really hear anything from the other barrios
Exception is for the San Andres where each barrio participate financially in the fiesta patronal and have a fiesta in their territory but it is basically part of the church organization. The barrios have not graduated from their connection to the church into pressure groups like they have in Chiapas.
In my barrio in San Cristobal we want to fence the plaza and everyone who gave 200 pesos is receiving a discount on their water bill.. That is what a barrio should be...
