Mexico: Public Works in Izamal – A Photo Essay

November 2, 2009

Thirty two years ago I stopped with a friend in Izamal, a town some 70 kilometers east of Merida, for a leisurely midday meal.  As the only patrons in the modest restaurant, we were treated to a front door view of a road department project on the main square.  The young woman in some of the photos was our waitress.  Her bemused expression tells a story of its own.

In those days in the Yucatan, the inhabitants worked communally to improve their towns.  I am not so sure of the situation in current times.Izamal023Izamal022Izamal024Izamal025Izamal026Izamal027Izamal028
