Floating down the canals of Xochimilco

Mexico City 094cropped

Traffic jam Mexican style in Xochimilco. This is what we faced coming back from a lazy Wednesday afternoon on the floating garden. Along the way these boats are usually solicited by other boats selling food, music, toys, flowers and live plants. Right after Anita took this picture our man-on-pole made a right turn up a secluded tributary and avoid the traffic jam you see in this picture. Understand this was a Wednesday and I can’t imagine what these waters look like on a Mexican holiday. I guess the people that drive in Mexico City are used to this mad cluster. Mexican find comfort in crowds they tell me.
