Mexican life

Downtown people on Saturday

The one in the middle is the mother of the one on the left.
Looking my way, but lost in her thoughts.
Shop girls where I bought a baguette.

I’VE BEEN LEAVING my camera at home too much lately, so today I didn’t. There are usually quite a few interesting people downtown who can be immortalized here.

  1. We used to visit a corner vendor who sold shrimp burgers as well as hamberguesses’ (sic) at nighttime. He put on such a show of chopping, flippin’ and moving’ all the food around on his griddle that it was worthy of a few photos and the wait to get your food. He always seemed to know who got what in a crowd of 15 or more.


    1. Leisa: I know exactly who that is. He’s quite a character. I am very rarely downtown at night anymore, but I’ve purchased quite a bit of his good grub in the past. He supports his family, sends his kids to private schools and drives a late-model car, all due to that sidewalk burger stand. I often think of him when I hear people say there are no opportunities in Mexico. There are.
