More "on the road"
I think almost every Mexican town we drove through had a town square. Here are two examples: first is the square at Tecate, which is the border crossing town where we entered Mexico. It was a busy place and quite pretty.
The second picture was taken quite a way further south in the town of San Iganacio, after we had crossed into the state of Baja California Sur. Again, we are in the town square, and I asked Bird to take my picture by this huge tree. At the opposite end of the square some people had set up a stand to sell plastic baskets--things you might use in your kitchen or laundry room for storage or serving food. It was the middle of the day and some folks were sleeping on the benches, or just hanging around the square and visiting. They may have been tourists, since San Ignacio is home to an old spanish Mission of the same name.
