Nordo... there are a lot of us... and getting even a minor injury as I have changes your whole trip and the experience of it. Because of my messed up knee I have met a lot of caring and talented healers down here. People I never would have met had I not been injured. I have also had to go more slowly and stay in some places longer. The experience is all the richer for it in many ways. I probably not have spent a week in San Cristobal de las Casas had I not been newly injured. I did not see the place the way I normally see a town, covering great distances on foot and finding many out of the way places. I had a pretty set pattern of where I would go, how slowly I would get there and what I would do...curiously I learned that there were other people who moved slowly and had set patterns and our paths were wonderfully congruent. The best parts of life can be that way!
