What Good Is A Road (Part 4)

Here on the roads of Mexico, you can buy just about anything from your car window. No need for a drive-in restaurant or drive-thru window…just get stuck at a light or in heavy traffic and you’re likely to have plenty of options. This guy was selling “Gorditas de Nata” for about $1 a bag. If you’re curious and want to know what a “Gordita de Nata” is, I’ll tell you. It’s an overweight woman from a town called “Nata.” Ha-ha…that was a little joke…or big as the case may be. (sorry it’s after 11:30 p.m. and my humor can get a little dangerous at this point in the day…or night as it is) Actually, these are little sweet breads which is probably why that’s exactly what they look like in the photo.

Jugglers are common at street lights. They hope for some coins for the show. Also, car window washers and car dusters are common (no they actually try and remove the dust from your car, there’s no need to add dust…and once in my case, one car duster actually removed part of my car which is why I never let them touch my car anymore).

Say it with flowers…in this case…at least don’t run them over. Often the prices are quite good but the flowers can be quite wilted as well.

Another juggler…can’t beat the fire sticks though. Sometimes they do flame-throwing from their mouth but I refuse to tip them b/c it is just too dangerous for the person…I don’t want to encourage it.
