Driving home today it was POURING RAIN. Major thunderstorm and we were right in it. Huge bolts in the sky and defeaning thunder. It was awesome. Our driver probably thought I was a bit wacky. Good. I love the weather here.
Life in the street. People work hard in intersections. Selling flowers, candy, cookies, clothes, lottery tickets. I have even seen a guy with a lit torch (like a juggling torch) lighting cigarettes for drivers.
These are city buses. There are bigger ones but these make me smile.
It is nice to be in a country that cares about the FIFA world cup. Sadly, Mexico lost on Saturday and is now out. I watched the game while having lunch on my day off. I was in the Zona Rosa and these girls worked in the restaurant where I ate/watched.
Then I walked around Zona Rosa a bit. More colors.
I also saw this restaurant which made me think of "Snobby Noodle" which is funny to me and about 4 other people. Those people who I'm sure aren't reading this blog.
I'm working in Mexico City for the summer. There is a bit of driving and I have a Kodak Easy Share V530 camera. Very handy for snapping off shots at random. Here are some pictures I took while going from the Zocalo to another part of town.
I live in Los Angeles. In the summer of 2006 I worked in Mexico City. Instead of sending out giant emails full of photos to friends and families, I started this blog. The summer turned out to be a crazy one and this blog and my camera kept me sane. I didn't want to stop observing and writing when I got home to LA, so I kept the blog going.
