That is why when I finally had an afternoon off from work, several weeks ago, I jumped at the chance to once again cruise the crazy streets of Downtown Laredo, where drug deals, rancherismo-dancing, prostitution, panhandlers and cheap, electronic knockoffs keep my blogging back for more.
Perfect afternoons away from the work are a rarity for me, so I decided to unwind by sipping on a Ziggy-sixer and stumbling down the streets of my beloved hometown. Below you will find of few of the things I encountered on this particular occasion.
|Who says we have no culture in Laredo? Modern art is everywhere.|
|Downtown, they take their patriotic duties very seriously. Shops get closed for God and Country.|
|I was surprised at the amount of shops closed on this particular day. Is it El Guapo's birthday or something?|
|You can stand in the middle of the street on Salinas Ave at 4:30pm and not worry about a thing.|
