At the top of the stairs stood the large Church of St. Domingo. The Church of St. Domingo was built by the Dominicans in Chiapa de Corso, Mexico, in the late 16th century. I could see the front of the church from where I was standing.
As I was gazing at the big church from the bottom of the stairs, a man carrying a lot of hammocks came into view. The man who started to climb the stairs seemed to be a hammock peddler and was looking for customers.
I've seen people using hammocks in Vietnam, I've seen them in Thailand, and I've seen them in Myanmar. But they were originally used by indigenous people living in the tropics of South America. It seems to be customary to use them in Mexico, which is closer to South America. Here, the siesta custom is the same as in Spain, so it must have been pleasant to swing in a hammock for a nap on a lazy afternoon.
The man was heading towards the entrance of the church. Perhaps he has decided to target the people who come to worship inside the church.
