Stop the Traffic: Kiss in Progress



Monday Mornings

This is no news, it is always the same.

6:45 am at one of our high ways -Periferico Norte-  going downtown, 9 lanes completely full.  Gas is expensive, endless  commute (1 passenger per car, average!), one could learn   a second language during stops, and we are so used to it.

Traffic? Get real!

This is an everyday scene in Mexico City. I don’t know how you picture one of the largest cities in the world, but  traffic is really an indicator of its people, ways and living.

Mexico City has about 25 million people and more than 2 million cars going up and down. This photograph is the “Circuito Interior” (Interior Circuit) one of the fast roads we have. We have faster ones, but I thought this one would be a good example, as you can see. (hahaha!)  I suggest you to click into the picture so you can get a glimpse of the sort of roads we have, the kind of cars we drive. If you look into detail, you will find out that most cars have only one passenger, the driver! It is not used to carpool for many reasons. (You can ask me why later 🙂 )
