You famous? Not me and … guess what? neither is he. And it is not that he is asking her for her phone number (that I tried, didn’t work! :) )
This man had a long line of women waiting. I thought he was like someone known? That by the way, I didn’t. So I got closer to find out that what he was doing was writing person’s name in Arabic for some coins… and it was working! (could it be the looks?).
I should give it a try, I do not know arabic but I can give hugs!…No, those are free. Would kisses work? I will tell you next weekend.
Sorry about the repetitive bike theme, but that’s what I do all weekends. Anyways, we left or bikes locked on a light pole and left for a walk on the street, when we came back we realized there was a handicap sign. First, we didn’t intend to park our bikes there, then we thought.
Wait a minute, there is no access to the sidewalk, there is no parking allowed on this street, how did this sign get here? We came to the conclusion that City Hall had some extra signs and just placed them on random places!
Bike with goggles? Imposible! Steer your bike with an inflatable shark? Preposterous!
Well, let’s admit it. It happens.
These guys were participating with Greenpeace on some initiative in a very particular way.
Note to the reader: In this post I learned how to spell preposterous! :)
Give me your money for the piggy bank! Well also for the giraffe, the turtle, and the tennis bank. (I don’t know where I get post titles like these…)
Many things get sold at the sidewalk, just like these cute piggy banks. It is the first time I see a giraffe….. Oh! well.. In a globalized world, piggies have to loose their monopoly!
There was an Expo at Avenida Reforma, one of our main avenues. And the expo was about food from other countries such as Brazil, Great Britain, Germany, Salvador, Greece, Colombia and many more. This persons represented a tribe from Ecuador and sang and played some very rhythmical music, the one that makes you lift your feet. Very contagious.
These guys at the extrems of the bench have nothing to do by being honest or not. “Keep Them Honest” is a poker expresion meaning: “To call at the end of a hand to prevent someone from bluffing.”
There are so many expression that it took me a while finding one that would fit this photo.
This is a bench, formed by poker cards. (yes, I know that is obvious, but still had to make my point! :) )
The construction of the Torre Latinoamericana started in 1948 and ended in 1956. It has 44 stories, and at that time it was the tallest building in Latin America with a height of 188 meters. It was also named the tallest building outside the U.S.
What makes this building important is its resistance to earthquakes. Have in mind that Mexico continually has telluric movement. It withstood the 1957 earthquake of 7.7 richter scale when the Angel of Independence fell from its column. It would withstand the 1985 earthquake of 8.1 , and the later earthquake of 7.9 on march 20th this year.
Nowadays the same mexican technology is used to build skyscrapers on high seismic risk areas.
If it shakes, we have the recipe….
They are so cute! See the helmets from the kids. Have you notice the ladybug that the youngest kid is wearing?
Today is when a great number of streets are closed for families to go out biking, roller skating or on scooters. This day was lots of fun!
Don’t ask me why, but today there were a lot of people with disguises. Mainly with customs from video games… Very very uncanny!, the kind of things that happen in big cities like mine, Mexico City.
This guy is at work. Yes, he is working.
He sells the chairs where he is sitting at. What a nice way to do your job!
To be honest, I would have bought one, but I was biking. Hard to take it with me.
