Mean Streets of Mexico

Mexico was literally an experience from the other side of the earth, nothing about this place could have been more different than life here in Australia. The streets of Mexico were amazing, at times horrendous, at times beautiful, but always interesting. You never know what you will find around the corner, from food carts, to carts full of soldiers.


Scorching tarmac in alpine Creel, Chihuaha


Steep gutters in San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas


A remote roadside town with eight peso baños, Oaxaca Hill Country, Oaxaca


A reoccuring phenomenon, a dead end in the Silver capital of Mexico, Taxco de Alarcón, Guerrero

The road and registration rules in Mexico were very “lo que quieras” that is to say “whatever you want”. If it works, go for it seems to be how things are run, this isn’t a bad thing, but it was a shock to the system.


Cobbles and ATVs in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco


Quiet and sleepy in Barrio Antiguo, the colonial section of Mazatlán, Sinaloa


Noisy and contrasting, 4 lanes of beachside avenue in Mazatlán, Sinaloa

Funny that my first real post isn’t even based in Canberra, but that’s how it goes sometimes. All of these photos were taken with my iPhone 4s, and link through to Flickr.

    I agree it is a country of contrasts!
