Hard to believe Oaxaca was only a month ago. It’s been a whirlwind of activity this past month. Before we can catch up to the present, here are a few shots from an interesting drive.
This highway is one lane in each direction. Those two big rigs on the left are tandem-passing the one on the right. We have seen some crazy driving in Mexico but this one is by far the most comical.
More….this time a passenger bus is passing two tandem trucks. There are so many tandems here because the wind was strong and some trucks traveled in pairs to avoid getting blown over.
The same two big rigs from the first picture now passing a big rig towing a double load AND another truck. And so we followed too!
When all said and done it was really more entertaining and hilarious than any kind of dangerous. But then again, our perspective on acceptable driving behavior has certainly changed. They have their own self-enforced system here and when it’s time to go back to the States we may have to tone it down a bit ourselves.
