« Back to My Mexico



Jamie, Shavonda, Fatemah (our "coordinator," a.k.a., our mom) and our driver/translator (whose name I forget! sorry!) went shopping one day in Manzanillo, a large industrial town to the south of our house. Not touristy in the slightest, Manzanillo is a slice of true Mexican culture. We didn't have cameras with us that day, and we still got stared at by EVERYONE simply because we stuck out so much: a Black woman, and Asian woman, and a white guy with a bleached fauxhawk...not common in Mexico.

So anyway--this was the central square of Manzanillo. This metal sculpture was HUGE. Everyone is poiinting at it in wonder. Gaze upon the giant metal fish! Worship it! Fear it! You are powerless against the giant metal fish!
