Saxy Girl

What’s in a name? I titled this photo Saxy Girl, and it seems to have paid off. A few days ago this photo became my most viewed snap on Flickr of all time, with (at the time of writing) 3,380 views since I uploaded it just under a year ago on May 24th 2009. It has to be said, she is rather…saxy.

The Street Protest

Someone or something upset the microbus drivers at Taxquena today. And in very Mexican style, they made their displeasure known by  blocking off the main road outside the station at a very busy junction. Everyone else seemed to be videoing it with their cell phones, and as I haven’t much used my iPod Nano for video, I thought I’d give it a go! And so here it is, a glimpse into everyday life in Mexico City….protesters blocking off roads are not rare, by any stretch of the imagination!
