Mazatlán is Paradise
i can see from their face that they love their photo to be taken :)
Something very unexpected: smiles on faces of people carrying heavy guns. Good shot of shooting, sorry, smiling people.
nice smiley faces!
Well better stay friends with them; they seem to be "well" equipped!
I would not want their job, they do get to carry big guns though.
Friendly people who enjoy their surroundings.
Wow. Guns and all. It would take some getting used to. Nice photograph though. We got snow coming down at the moment and about 5 or 6 inches already on the ground. Does that make you sad?
What great faces. They are so open yet right, they carry guns. Goodness.
Did you tell them your blog is visited by people from all over the world? They'd love that! :)
Glad you didn't ask them to do anything they didn't want to do, what with the guns and all!
Like everyone said, the contradiction between the heavy artilleries on the policemen and their friendly smile is quite interesting.To respond to your comment about tripe soup, I've had them a couple of times before. I like them actually, especially the peppery soup and slightly chewy consistency of the meat.
In USA you can't get any closer than this! Believe me. These are hard working people trying to make a living by serving and protecting while getting a miserable monthly pay, compared to American standards, about 8oo dls. a month. We don't figure up by means of annual perceptions.Luciano, from Mazatlan, Mexico.
Great photo...I love photos that feature the people who live in an area.
Hola, Kate! Quiero decirte que una amiga mia va a estudiar espanol en Mexico durante el mes que viene. Ella va a Cuernavaca.I thought I'd give you some practice!! Nice shot of the policia!
Arms...vests! I wouldn't want to jaywalk in front of them!At least they look friendly.
I'm glad that they're smiling :-)
They definitely look like they are ready for some serious action! You have the skill to make even the toughest men smile =)
