As Seen in Mexico

A few weeks ago while driving back to the marina, I looked out the window and saw a full sized horse being transported in the back of an old truck. Not a trailer, not a large converted truck. He was just standing in the back of a regular run down truck.  After I fretted about the horse for a moment, I then giggled and sighed, "Oh, Mexico". 

Over the past two years we've been in Mexico, we've run across a lot of things that you may not see where we come from. Below are photos of things 'as seen in Mexico'. Some of them make you laugh or smile, others make you cringe and some just make you go hmmm...

Oh, Mexico...

I'm sure the wires are all up to code.

Open wires....everywhere.

We have been here long enough that all of these things are now normal in our day to day lives. We need to remind ourselves to appreciate the unique and extraordinary that surrounds us in lovely Mexico.

  1. Yes yes yes to all of this. I love this about Mexico. There is always something interesting to look at and watch for. I love the "Oh Mexico" phrase....said it many times myself. I buy my pineapple and watermelon off the back of a pickup truck on the regular. It just feels like that's the way it's supposed to be now!

    1. Exactly! I love the produce and bakery trucks :)

  2. Thanks- I was just thinking about you and thinking you hadn't posted in awhile. Take care.

    1. Hi Ann! I know, Covid slowed my writing down. I'm ready to get back at it! Good to hear from you!
