Skull and Headlights

The modern day pirate, with the skull secured to the two wheeled monster that roams the streets of Mexico City after dark. Or else the owner of this bike is just preparing for Day of the Dead in about a month’s time. One just hope the preparations involved purchasing a fake skull from a shop and not sourcing the real thing from elsewhere….

The bike was parked up in Coyoacan, where we took some French visitors who had arrived in the city a couple of days earlier. In 2005 Paola had a couple of French friends come to visit us for a couple of weeks, and these latest Frenchies were relatives of one of them. So it seemed the friendly thing to do to hook up, lend them my Lonely Planet guidebook and show them around a little before they head off out of the city.

Sadly, their first impression of the city was that it must be full of thieving bastards. The female of the two got pickpocketed on the Metrobus.
